Can I self-isolate with other members of my household?

Wherever possible, you should self-isolate on your own or within your travel party if you have all travelled together.

If you are unable to self-isolate away from other members of your household, you will all need to self-isolate. In this circumstance, you will need to inform the booking team of this when they call you to arrange your test.

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.

If you are self-isolating with other people in your household, you will need to complete an online form which can be found at www.gov.gg/isolatetogether. This is to ensure that everyone is registered and offered a day 13 test. 

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.
