What does self-isolation mean?

In practical terms it means:

  • Go home, and stay at home, avoiding contact with other people
  • Do not go to work, school or public areas
  • Do not use public transport (including taxis)
  • Avoid visitors to your home
  • Ask friends, family members or delivery services to carry out errands for you – such as getting groceries, medications or other shopping
  • Do not go to the GP/attend hospital without ringing in advance
