Who should self-isolate?
Guidelines from a UK source via BBC
- If you live alone, you must stay at home for seven days from the day symptoms start
- If you or someone you live with has symptoms, then the entire household needs to isolate for 14 days from the day they start
- Anyone in the household who starts displaying new symptoms during the 14-day period will need to stay at home for seven more days, regardless of how long they have already been isolated
Everyone who shows coronavirus symptoms – a fever of above 37.8C, a persistent cough or breathing problem – and everyone who lives in the same house or flat as someone with symptoms.
