How do I calculate my self-isolation period after travel?

If you are self-isolating because you have symptoms, you must self-isolate for the duration of these symptoms. If you have been tested for COVID-19 and the result of that test was negative, you may leave self-isolation once the symptoms have gone. 

Travel: Day 1 is the day you travel into the Bailiwick, whatever time you arrive. If you are eligible for a Day 7 test, you can go out as soon as you receive a negative test result (please bear in mind this could take up to 48 hours). 

Everyone arriving from Category 4 regions and countries is now required to self-isolate until they have received a negative result from a day 13 test. If you decline a day 13 test, you will have to self-isolate for 21 days. Those who choose to self-isolate with someone who has travelled to the Bailiwick will also have to adhere to the same requirement. More information is available at
