How long do I need to self-isolate for if I live with other people and I was the first person to show symptoms?

If you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. See the explanatory diagram on our website.

All the information you need is on our stay at home guidance webpage.
