Covid Rules from 17th January

From 17 January in England, people who receive positive lateral flow device (LFD) test results for coronavirus (COVID-19) will be required to self-isolate immediately and won’t be required to take a confirmatory PCR test unless they develop Covid symptoms:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Lateral flow tests are taken by people who do not have Covid-19 symptoms. Anyone who tests positive but remains asymptomatic will be able to leave self-isolation on day 6 after the date of their initial positive test if they receive 2 negative LFD results, 24 hours apart, on days 5 and 6 or on 2 following consecutive days.

Anyone who tests positive but develops 1 of the 3 main COVID-19 symptoms should stay at home and self-isolate and take a PCR test. They must self-isolate if they get a positive test result, even if they have had a recent negative lateral flow test – these rules have not changed.

Under this new approach, anyone who receives a positive LFD test result should report their result on GOV.UK  and must self-isolate immediately but those who have no symptoms will not need to take a follow-up PCR test.
