Self-isolation guidelines and support


Self-isolation is about protecting others and stopping the spread of Covid-19.

You must self-isolate immediately if:

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • you’ve tested positive for coronavirus
  • you live with someone who has symptoms or tested positive
  • you’re told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS Covid-19 app
  • you arrive in the UK from a country with a high coronavirus risk

If you experience symptoms of Coronavirus, you must self-isolate at home and book a free test on the NHS website, by ringing 911, or by accessing the NHS Test and Trace app.

To find out for how long you must self-isolate, visit the NHS website.

If you’ve been asked to self-isolate by the NHS Test and Trace service, you may be entitled to a support payment of £500. More information is available here.
