Self-isolation advice

If you or the person you care for or anyone else in the household gets sick with possible COVID-19, then you must isolate. 

  • The person who is sick must stay in the house for 10 days from the start of symptoms
  • Everyone else in the household must stay at home for 14 days 
  • If you catch the infection during those 14 days then you must stay at home for another minimum of 10 days
  • You must aim to stay at least 2 metres away from other people in the house during this time. This may not be possible if you have to give direct care. Consider whether you should use any personal protection
