Self-Isolation

Self-isolation is about protecting others and slowing down the spread of COVID-19. It is very important that anyone who has the virus, or might have been exposed to it, limits the number of people they come into contact with for 10 days. This is the most effective way of preventing the coronavirus from spreading.

You do not need to self isolate if you are fully vaccinated and 14 days have passed since your second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine given by the NHS.

Additionally in England, you do not have to self-isolate if you:

  • are taking part (or have taken part) in an approved Covid-19 vaccine trial
  • are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons
  • you are taking part or have taken part in a COVID-19 vaccine trial
