Self Isolation Period goes up

Just announced

 

People who test positive for coronavirus or show symptoms in the UK must now self-isolate for 10 days.

 

The change, announced by the UK's four chief medical officers just now, comes as ministers try to avoid a resurgence of the virus.

 

Until now, those showing key symptoms - a new continuous cough, a temperature or loss of taste or smell - have had to self-isolate for at least a week.

 

The new advice is in line with World Health Organization guidance.
