How long to self-isolate
Find out how long you need to self isolate for if you or someone you live with has any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or has tested positive for coronavirus.
You usually have to self-isolate for 10 full days if you've tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or have been in close contact with someone who has it.
You might need to self-isolate for longer if you get symptoms or your symptoms do not go away.
If you have symptoms and have not had a test, stay at home and get a PCR test to check if you have COVID-19 on GOV.UK.
