If you test positive for COVID-19 you must self-isolate for 7 days. This helps stops the spread to others around you and the wider community.
Household Contacts do not need to isolate. If you are a Household Contact, you should test daily for 5 days with a rapid antigen test (RAT) from the day the person with COVID-19 tested positive.
Starting your self-isolation
You must begin your self-isolation from whichever of these dates came first:
Ending your self-isolation
The day you can continue your normal activities, including work, is called Day 8.
You can exercise outdoors in your neighbourhood (but not at a swimming pool or gym or other communal area).
You must physically distance from other people but you do not need to wear a mask.
Stick to gentle, familiar exercise. Do not take on new or risky activities that may lead to a need for you to be rescued.
Continue to take your normal medications as usual. If you need any medication, contact your GP or pharmacy and tell them you are in home isolation. Ask them to send your prescription to a pharmacy, who will deliver it to you for free.
