Next Steps for Living with Covid

Adults with symptoms of a respiratory infection and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.

Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature and are well enough to attend.

Adults with a positive covid test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days.  

Children with a positive covid test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days.

There is no longer a recommendation to regularly test with lateral flow tests and schools are no longer able to order any or give any out, unless advised by their Local Health Authority.
