Can I go home to self isolate?

Has a close contact tested positive?

Self-isolation for unvaccinated contacts of Covid-19 cases applies for 10 days which you must complete at your current address. People who are fully vaccinated and identified as a contact of someone with Covid-19 – whether Omicron or not – should take an NHS rapid lateral flow test every day for 7 days. This applies to those recognised as ‘fully vaccinated’ under the UK’s travel policy. Self-isolation will only apply if a test is positive. Read the guidance.

Have you tested positive?

People infected with Covid-19 in England can stop self-isolating after seven days by providing negative lateral flow results on day six and day seven. Self-isolation must be completed at your current address.

Those experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 should not end their isolation early and should stay at their current address.

Do you have symptoms?

If you experience Covid-19 symptoms, you should get tested using Test and Trace. You should begin self-isolation at your current address. We have a dedicated Covid-19 Test and Trace service for both students and staff on campus at Warwick.

People infected with Covid-19 in England can stop self-isolating after seven days by providing negative lateral flow results on day six and day seven. Those experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 should not end their isolation early.
