People will have to self-isolate again if symptoms return. Work is going on to look at testing for immunity to the virus, but until that exists, people with COVID-19 symptoms, and their household members, must stay at home. Staying at home will help control the spread of the virus to friends, the wider community, and particularly the most vulnerable. The stay at home guidance is available at the following link:
