Testing and isolation

There is no longer a legal requirement for people with coronavirus (COVID-19) infection to self-isolate, however if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 or a positive test result, the public health advice is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.


The COVID-19 vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and others. You are less likely to be seriously ill, die or spread the virus to other people.

Local outbreak management plan

The Local Outbreak Management Plan (LOMP) is a legal requirement for each local authority as it contains information and plans around breaking chains of transmission and preventing and containing outbreaks.
