Covid self-isolation: New rule in England for those who test positive after medical review

Fitness & Health:

How many people in the street thought, when the UK discovered it’s first case in late-January 2020, that it would have the impact that it has had? Since that first case was registered, at RAF Brize Norton, the world as we know it has changed. It has also stayed the same in a lot of ways. What has changed is how we interact with COVID-19.

This has come after a review of the medical evidence that suggested it was safe to do so.

Whilst the self-isolation period has come down, a new rule dictates that you can only leave that isolation period after a negative test on day five and day six of your isolation.

If you test positive on days five and six you must continue to stay in isolation until they have had two negative tests on consecutive days.


Of the new restrictions, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said this new rule would “restore extra freedoms”.


On Omicron, there has been some recent positive news.

Cases are starting to plateau and fall in some places.

In London cases are beginning to drop and for the first time since the 21st December, the UK recorded fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 infections.

Whilst this is positive news, the pandemic is far from over, though as the days get longer, there may be promise of warmer times ahead.
