Rules regarding the infection remain the same. If you develop coronavirus symptoms (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) you should self-isolate immediately and request a test from www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call 119.
Self-isolation is for 10 days if you have symptoms or have tested positive
for the virus. Keep self-isolating after 10 days if you have any of a high
temperature or feeling hot and shivery, a runny nose or sneezing, feeling or being sick, diarrhoea. Only stop self-isolating when these symptoms have gone.
Self-isolation is 14 days if someone you live with or in your support bubble
has symptoms or has tested positive or you have been told to do so by
NHS track and trace. This protects those around you. You must complete
your isolation even if you have been unable to obtain a test.
