If you fall into one of the below groups, you must self-isolate if contacted by NHS Test and trace or you test positive for Covid:
Self-isolating is an effective way of slowing down the spread of Covid and we thank you enormously for helping.
Please remember, although you are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you are double jabbed or aged under 18 - if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace (and you are not experiencing any symptoms) - the testing policy remains unchanged. If you have received both doses of the vaccine or aged under 18 you must self-isolate for ten days if you test positive for Covid using a PCR test.
What do I have to do?
What if I have been vaccinated?
When should I start the 10 day self-isolation period?
Your ten-day period must start:
Remember that if you develop symptoms of Covid during this ten day period, you must self-isolate for another ten days from the day that your symptoms first started. If you do not develop any symptoms during the ten days, you can return to your normal routine on day 11.
We will continue to update this information as the situation evolves. Together we can #BeatCovidNE
