If you have symptoms of COVID-19

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, however mild, you must self-isolate at home for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. (Please see section on when to seek medical advice). You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19.

Preventative self-isolation

People may be advised by their GP or hospital doctors to self-isolate as a precaution, either before a medical procedure, or afterwards. This is a different kind of self-isolation to that outlined in this guidance, which is about people who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for the virus. If you have been advised by your doctor to self-isolate as a precaution, it is to ensure that you are as well as possible for your medical procedure to go ahead, or to enable you to recover fully afterwards. 

What you can and can’t do during this kind of self-isolation depends on what your doctor has advised, and each case will be different. If you have any queries, you must ask the doctor who told you to self-isolate for their advice.

Key points

  • Self-isolation period is 10 days.
  • Self-isolation is for 10 days if you develop symptoms. People who develop symptoms should request a test. If the test is negative they can stop their self-isolation.
  • Self-isolation is for 10 days if you test positive for COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • Self-isolation is for 10 days if you live with someone or someone from your extended household has developed symptoms. If the person with symptoms then tests negative everyone can stop their self-isolation.
  • Self-isolation is for 10 days if you have been contacted by Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) to confirm you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19. Even if you have a test and it is negative you must still self-isolate for 10 days. This is because you are close contact of someone who has COVID-19 and the virus can take time to show in your system.
  • You could be fined if you do not stay at home and self-isolate following a positive test result for COVID-19, or if you are a contact of someone who has tested positive, and you are notified by NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect that you need to self-isolate.

If you have received a POSITIVE test result for COVID-19 infection:

  • Self-Isolate for at least 10 days

You must self-isolate at home in line with the UK Government self-isolation guidance: https://gov.wales/self-isolation-stay-home-guidance-households-possible-coronavirus 

To reduce the risk of passing on the infection to other household members you should take actions as outlined in the guidance.

Please refer to the ‘Ending Isolation’ guidance and for more information on when it is safe for you to come out of isolation:

https://gov.wales/self-isolation-stay-home-guidance-households-possible-coronavirus#section-38207

Your household members must self-isolate for 10 days from your symptom onset date; if they subsequently develop symptoms themselves, they must self-isolate for at least 10 days from their symptom onset and may request a test. 

If the ill person in the household is not showing any signs of improvement and has not already sought medical advice, visit the NHS Direct Wales website or call NHS 111.  If it is a medical emergency, call 999.

 

If you have had a NEGATIVE test result for COVID-19 infection:

1. Persons identified as contacts of COVID-19
If you have been spoken to or identified as a contact of a case of COVID-19 and are within your 10 day self-isolation period, please continue to follow the advice on here.

Despite a negative test (with symptoms or without), you must continue to self-isolate until the 10 day incubation period is over.   

If you subsequently become unwell after the 10 day incubation period, you should self-isolate again, and may need a further test.


2. Persons without a known contact of COVID-19
Your negative test does not conclusively rule out infection due to COVID-19, but means that it is more likely that your symptoms were due to a different infection, such as influenza or other bugs that cause coughs and colds. It is important that you do not pass on these infections either, and should continue to self-isolate until you are better.

If you subsequently become unwell again, you should self-isolate, and may need a further test.

If you have had a NEGATIVE test result but have never had any symptoms, there is no need to self-isolate.  If you subsequently become unwell, you should self-isolate, and may need a further test.
