Self-Isolation - Coronavirus

If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, you need to self-isolate. You should stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started.

If you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to self-isolate for 14 days from the day their symptoms started. This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.

For more information on self-isolation, including on ending self-isolation, please read the NHS Self-isolation advice page.

While self-isolating you must:

  • not leave your home for any reason, other than to exercise once a day – but stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people
  • not go out to buy food or collect medicine – order them by phone or online, or ask someone else to drop them off at your home
  • not have visitors, such as friends and family, in your home

You can use your garden, if you have one.
