If you are self-isolating, you must keep a distance from those you live with.

To self-isolate means:

  • To stay at home and not have contact with anyone else other than the people you live with.
  • To avoid close physical contact with other members of your household.
  • To pay particular attention to hygiene and cleaning.

Please wear a CE-marked face mask if you need to briefly break self-isolation, for example to get tested or go to the hospital. Remember not to use public transportation or taxi.

How do I self-isolate?

  • You should stay at home and not meet with people you do not live with. Stay at home, and do not go out. Do not go to work and get others to help with shopping, walking your dog etc. If you order food or other items for home delivery, make sure that deliveries are left outside your front door. Do not allow visitors to enter your home. Keep in touch by phone or video calls instead.
  • Avoid close contact with other members of your household. This is particularly important if you live with someone who is at risk of severe illness from covid-19. Avoid close physical contact such as kissing and hugging and keep a distance other people. Avoid sleeping together and spending too much time together in the same room. Ideally you should use a separate toilet/bathroom. If this is not possible, you should clean surfaces, such as handles and taps, before the toilet/bathroom is used by other members of your household.
