Minimum self-isolation period cut

From today, the minimum self-isolation period for people with Covid-19 has been cut to five full days in England – as part of a balanced and proportionate approach to restoring more freedom to the country, whilst keeping everyone safe. 

  • The government have always been clear that the plan was to keep Covid-19 guidance under constant review to ensure that we are taking the most effective approach in the interests of public health.
  • That is why, from today, after careful consideration of modelling by UKHSA, the rules will allow people self-isolating with Covid-19 to end their isolation period after five full days if they test negative on both day five and six and do not have a temperature. 
  • This will help support essential public services and keep supply chains running, whilst restoring more freedom to our county and keeping everyone safe.
