You must self-isolate for 14 days if you live with (or are in a support bubble with) someone who:
- has symptoms of coronavirus and tested positive, had an unclear result, or did not have a test
- tested positive but has not had symptoms
This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.
The 14 days start from:
- when the first person in your home or support bubble started having symptoms
- the day they were tested if they have not had symptoms – but if they get symptoms after they were tested, self-isolate for a further 14 days from when their symptoms start
