How long should self-isolation last?

If you test positive, your self-isolation period should begin on the day your symptoms started (or the day you had the test, if you did not have symptoms).

It is now possible to end self-isolation after 5 full days if you have 2 negative LFD tests taken on consecutive days.

You may need to self-isolate for longer if you get symptoms while self-isolating or your symptoms do not go away.

Can I mix with my household or kitchen group?

If you have symptoms you need to self-isolate and stay away from other people as much as possible.
