Guidance for contacts of people with confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection who do not live with the person

The UK Health Security Agency has issued updated guidance for contacts of people with confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection who do not live with the person

 

Anyone aged 5 years and over, who has been identified as a contact of someone with COVID-19 and who is not legally required to self-isolate, is now strongly advised to take a rapid lateral flow device (LFD) test every day for 7 days or until 10 days since their last contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 if this is earlier. If any of these LFD tests are positive they should self-isolate in order to protect other people.

 

The public health advice for people with symptoms of, or a positive test result for COVID-19 remains the same for everyone.

 

Further information, the main messages and some frequently asked questions can be found in the guidance.
