COVID Information

New Isolation Guidance January 2022

For anyone testing positive on a PCR test, the isolation period can be reduced to 7 days if you have been vaccinated,  do not have any symptoms and achieve two negative LFD test results on day 6 and again on day 7.  (These tests must be taken 24-hours apart.) If you develop symptoms or the LFD test is positive, isolation must continue until two negative LFD test results are achieved. Adults should continue to observe good respiratory hygiene (wear a face mask and catch coughs & sneezes), ensure good ventilation and maintain social distancing.

Self-Isolation & Testing Guidance

What is a Lateral Flow Device Test (LFD)?

LFDs are for regular testing of people without symptoms.

If someone tests positive with an LFD test , they should immediately book a PCR test and self-isolate.

What is a PCR test?

A PCR test is for those with any of the Covid symptoms (new persistent cough, high temperature, loss of taste or smell) or anyone who has a positive LFD test result. Anyone with symptoms must isolate until a negative PCR test result is received.

A PCR test is also for close contacts of those who have tested positive for Covid. Children and double or triple vaccinated adults do not need to isolate whilst they wait for the PCR test result unless they develop symptoms.

What is a close contact?

A close contact can be either direct or proximity.

  1. A direct contact is anyone who has been face-to-face for any length of time with someone who has tested positive.
  2. A proximity contact is anyone who has been within 2 metres for 15 minutes or more with someone who has tested positive.
