Self-isolation rules change from Monday
Posted on: 13 August 2021
The rules change on Monday 16 August, for people who have received both their vaccinations against coronavirus, and people aged under 18.
Right now, it’s a legal requirement to self-isolate for anyone contacted by Test and Trace teams, because they’ve been in close proximity with someone who has since tested positive for COVID-19.
But from Monday, people who are double vaccinated and those under 18 will be exempt from that legal requirement.
They will however still be advised to take a PCR test, and if that’s positive, they’ll be legally required to self-isolate, irrespective of their vaccination status.Posted in: Community | DCC Homepage
