Covid Self Isolation Guidance
Do you know the new guidance on self-isolation?
If you’re fully vaccinated or under 18 you no longer need to self-isolate if you’re a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID-19 (14 days must have passed since your second dose).
But you still need to get a PCR test as soon as possible to check whether you have the virus. Book online at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test. You don’t need to isolate whilst waiting for the results, but it might be a good idea to take extra precautions.
People who are double vaccinated can still get COVID-19, so wear a mask in public places, limit contact with others and consider those who are more vulnerable.
If you are not vaccinated yet, book online at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19 or phone 119. You can also get your vaccine from one of the many walk-in centres and pop up clinics – find out where by visiting www.thevaccinators.co.uk.
Remember, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 you MUST self-isolate and get a PCR test.
