Reduction in quarantine time from 14 days to 10 days
You will be aware from breaking news this afternoon that quarantine for contacts is being reduced from 14 days to 10 days from Monday 14th December.
On Monday 14 December, the change to the isolation period for contacts will apply to all those who are currently self-isolating including those who commenced self-isolation before Monday. This effectively means that a review of current contact isolation periods will need to be undertaken.
Self-isolation periods will begin on the day after exposure, a test or the start of symptoms.
The NHS Test and Trace service will tell people to self-isolate for 10 days instead of 14 days from Monday.
