Changes to self-isolation advice as a result of the Omicron variant
[10/12/2021]

Please be advised that there have been changes to self-isolation advice as a result of the Omicron variant.

In particular:

If you are a close contact of someone who is confirmed or suspected to have the Omicron variant, you must self-isolate from the day you were last in contact with the person who tested positive and for the next 10 days, regardless of your vaccination status or age. Contact tracers will let you know if your contact is a confirmed or suspected case of the Omicron variant.

You should also take a PCR test on day 2 and day 8. It is important that you take the tests even if you feel well as you may have COVID-19 even if you do not have symptoms.

Even if these tests are negative, you must complete the isolation period. This is because if you have been infected, it can take time for symptoms to develop or to become infectious to others.

If the variant is suspected, you must isolate until it has been confirmed that the person who has tested positive does not have an Omicron variant. 

Please see the full self-isolation advice.

The Childcare and Playwork COVID-19 Guidance, Action Cards and FAQs will be updated shortly to reflect these changes.
