Try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people
If you have symptoms or a positive test result
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, including Covid-19, and a high temperature or feel unwell, try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until you feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
Free tests are no longer available but if you have taken a test and have a positive result, you are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days, which is when you are most infectious.
Further information can be found on the UK Government webpages and on the NHS webpages.
If someone in your household receives a positive test result
You do not need to isolate if a member of your household receives a positive test. If you develop symptoms or receive a positive test result you should follow Government advice and stay at home (see above).
Students in University accommodation
If you have symptoms of Covid-19 or a positive test result, please stay in your room when staff are in your accommodation.
