Covid-19 Updated Advice
In light of the government advice yesterday we would like to signal you to the latest guidance. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance. This guidance now supersedes any returning traveller advice or any previous advice.
If you are not showing the key symptoms of a high temperature (37.8 or above) or have a new, persistent cough then there is no requirement to self-isolate.
The main messages from the guidance are:
- If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section for more information)
- If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
- It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
- For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.
As you are aware, advice is changing constantly so we will keep you as updated as possible as matters and advice evolves.
