Isolation Update

If you test positive for COVID-19, you are required to isolate for 7 days from when your symptoms began or you had a positive test result whichever is earlier. This will help stop the spread of the virus.

➡️ If you still have symptoms after your seven day isolation period has ended, you are advised to stay at home until 24 hours after symptoms resolve.

➡️ Most people should not repeat their rapid antigen test again (for 28 days) after they have tested positive. The result may continue to be positive, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re still infectious.

➡️ A small number of specific workplaces such as healthcare settings, may require a negative RAT result before their employees return.

➡️ If you develop new cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms a month (28 days) or more after you have previously tested positive, you will need to have another rapid antigen test.
