From Wednesday 22 December 2021, The Civil Contingencies Authority has agreed to alter the mandatory isolation period for people with Covid-19, as long as certain criteria are met.
A 10-day mandatory self-isolation period will remain for all positive cases, however they can be released into enhanced passive follow-up after seven days as long as the following criteria is met:
- The positive case is symptom-free; AND
- They have had a negative lateral flow test on day 6 and day 7
If this is met, the individual can release themselves into enhanced passive follow-up until day 10 when restrictions are lifted.
