14.12.21 – Updated Covid-19 Flowchart
Daily testing is being introduced from today for close contacts of someone who has tested positive for Covid‐19 ‐ including those of Omicron cases ‐ in place of the requirement to self‐isolate. This means that anyone who is identified as a close contact and is either fully vaccinated or aged under 18 years 6 months does not need to self‐isolate but should take daily lateral flow tests for 7 days.
