A person may need to self-isolate for a number of reasons, such as:

  • If you have recently travelled
  • If you have tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19
  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19
  • If you are a contact of a case and have received a 'Stay at Home' request
  • If you have been asked to self-isolate by Public Health.

What if the person self-isolating is a child/young person?

We encourage contacts of a case who are fully vaccinated or are 18 years or below to separate within the household where at all possible if there is a case in the household. Other residents of the household can go about their business as normal, provided they are not subject to any restrictions of their own, as long as they are participating in Public Health testing programmes. The testing requirements will be advised by Public Health. If the person who is required to self-isolate is a child/young person or dependent adult who cannot self-isolate on their own, a carer will need to pair with them for the duration of the isolation period.
