Self-isolation Update | 14th December 2020

A change to the self-isolation period from 14 to 10 days has been announced.


Self-isolation is essential to reducing the spread of COVID as it breaks the chains of transmission. The number of days that contacts self-isolate has now been reduced from 14 days to 10 days.

People who return from countries which are not on the travel corridor list should also self-isolate for 10 days instead of 14 days.

People who test positive should continue to self-isolate for 10 days from onset of symptoms or 10 days from point of taking a positive test if asymptomatic.


If you or your child need to self-isolate you should now do this for 10 days.
