Can visitors self-isolate with me and my family? Will we all need to be tested?

Wherever possible, visitors should self-isolate on their own or within their travel party. If they are unable to self-isolate away from other members of the household, you will all need to self-isolate. In this circumstance, you will need to inform the booking team of this when they call to arrange your test. The household will not be able to come out of self-isolation until ALL members of the household have received a negative test results. 

While this is acceptable, all of those taking part in self-isolation must be aware of the requirements and the potential that if one of them is found to test positive for COVID-19, all of those self-isolating together will be contacts of the positive case and will therefore need to self-isolate for a further two weeks, and possibly longer if they too become infected with the virus.

You will need to ask for help if you require groceries, other shopping or medication. Friends, family or volunteers should shop on your behalf or alternatively you might want to order online. More information is available on the Food and Drink Deliveries webpage. 

If you need a repeat prescription whilst in self-isolation, call your GP in the first instance to confirm your requirements and a plan will be made to arrange the medication to be dispensed.
