Changes to Self-Isolation

From 17 January in England, if you are self-isolating with COVID-19 and provide negative lateral flow test results on day 5 and 6 you will be able to end self-isolation after 5 full days.
The decision has been made after careful consideration of modelling from the UK Health Security Agency and to support essential public services and workforces over the winter.
It is crucial that people isolating with COVID-19 wait until they have received 2 negative rapid lateral flow tests on 2 consecutive days to reduce the chance of still being infectious.
