Self-Isolation if Live in Wales

 

Welsh guidance on self-isolation changed on 29th October and is now different to that in England.  We recommend staff and students follow the guidance set out in their resident country.

Fully vaccinated or aged 5 to 17

 

If someone in your household has symptoms or has tested positive and you are fully vaccinated or aged 5 to 17 you should self-isolate and take a PCR test. If your test is negative you can stop isolating.

You should take a PCR test but do not need to isolate unless your result is returned positive.

Not fully vaccinated

 

If someone in your household has tested positive and you are not fully vaccinated you should self-isolate for 10 days. You should take a PCR test on day 2 and day 8. You should self-isolate for 10 days even if your tests are negative.

You should isolate for 10 days and take a PCR test.  Continue to isolate even if the result is negative.  If you develop symptoms you will need to take a further PCR test.

Children aged under 5

 

Children aged under 5 do not have to self-isolate or take a test if they have been a contact of a positive case in their household or otherwise.

Close contacts aged under 5 do not need to isolate but they should take a PCR test.
