If you test positive for Covid-19, you are required to self-isolate for 10 days from the day of your test date. The 10 day self-isolation will apply to everyone living and/or travelling with you. This quarantine period is mandatory regardless of symptoms being present or not.
If your Day 2 test result is positive, your sample may be subject to genome sequencing in order to discern any Covid-19 variants. This preventive measure aims to stop new variants from entering the UK.
Further advice will be provided with your test results.
