Self-isolation advice has changed
The Chief Medical Officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have updated the self-isolation advice for anyone who has symptoms of, or confirmed, COVID-19. Previously, the advice was to stay at home for 7 days if you have a positive result or have symptoms of the virus. This has now been updated to 10 days.
Although it’s still limited, stronger evidence shows that people with COVID-19 who are mildly ill and recovering from the virus have a low but real possibility of being able to infect others between 7 and 9 days after becoming ill with the virus.
If you develop symptoms of coronavirus, book a test and stay at home for 10 days.
More information on testing and tracing is available on the RBKC website.
