The Public Health Team have asked is to share this guidance on Self-Isolation during the school holidays.
Current guidance regarding self-isolation
You and your household must continue to self-isolate if you test positive or develop symptoms, for 10 days from the date of the test or first symptoms.
You must also self-isolate if you are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace or your child's school. This remains law.
As of 19 July, a limited number of critical workers may be informed by their employer, following government advice, to leave self-isolation to attend work.
Self-isolation changes in effect from Monday, 16 August
From 16 August, if you have been fully vaccinated you will be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate if you are a contact of a positive case. From this date, if you are under 18 and a contact of a positive case you will also be exempt from self-isolation.
In both instances, you will be advised to take a PCR test. If you test positive you will still need to self-isolate regardless of your vaccination status or age.
