Rapid Lateral Flow Test
Self-isolation cut to five full days in England
From today, the minimum self-isolation period for people testing positive for Covid-19 in England has been cut to five full days.
But people must have negative lateral flow tests on days five and six of their isolation.
Those who still test positive must stay in isolation until they have had two negative tests taken on consecutive days, or after 10 days.

Testing - Updated Guidance
The government has updated its Covid testing guidance, recommending that people in England take rapid lateral flow tests before going to high-risk settings
This includes spending time in crowded areas such as busy shopping streets, or when visiting vulnerable people in enclosed spaces.
The latest Covid advice signals a shift from previous guidance to take lateral flow tests twice a week.
It comes in the run-up to Christmas when people may be picking up presents from busy shopping areas.
