Hi all I'm getting confused, my first child got over covid 10 days ago, but my other daughter got it 6 days ago, do we have to stay isolated until the 10 days is up for when my last daughter contracted it, or can I go out now because its been 10 days since my first daughter had it

    How long you need to self-isolate

    If someone you live with tests positive, your self-isolation period includes the day their symptoms started (or the day they had the test, if they do not have symptoms) and the next 10 full days.

    When to stop self-isolating

    You can stop self-isolating after the 10 days if you do not get any symptoms.

    What to do if you get symptoms

    Get PCR a test to check if you have COVID-19 on GOV.UK if you get symptoms while you're self-isolating.

    If your test is negative, keep self-isolating for the rest of the 10 days.

    If your test is positive, the 10 days restarts from the day after your symptoms started. This will mean you're self-isolating for more than 10 days overall.
