Self-isolating at home

New rules for self-isolating from August 16

From Monday 16 August the rules around self-isolation are changing. People who have had both doses of the vaccination and under 18s will no longer need to self-isolate if they are identified as a close contact of someone with Covid-19.

Instead people will be advised to take a PCR test and anyone who tests positive following the PCR test will still be legally required to self-isolate, irrespective of their vaccination status.

You should still follow sensible guidance to keep yourself and others safe.

New rules


NHS invites young people for their Covid-19 jab ahead of their 18th birthday

Vaccine

Today, thousands of young people in Nottinghamshire nearing their 18th birthday can now book in for their life-saving Covid-19 jab.

Teenagers within three months of turning 18 can now book their vaccine appointment online through the National Booking Service or by calling 119. They can choose a Local Vaccination Site via a local GP Primary Care Network (PCN). GP PCNs will contact them directly to offer a suitable and convenient slot to receive their vaccine, dependent upon availability.

If you’re under 17 years and 9 months old and eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, you cannot use the National Booking Service to book an appointment. The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn to get the vaccine. You’ll be invited to a local NHS service such as a GP surgery. You cannot book your appointment online.

How you will be contacted


Covid-19 vaccines, pregnancy and breastfeeding

COVID-19 vaccines, pregnancy and breastfeeding

Pregnant women across the UK and the world have been safely vaccinated against Covid-19.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists recommends that all pregnant women get vaccinated, as having Covid-19 whilst pregnant can increase the risk of stillbirth.

Catching Covid-19 whilst pregnant also increases the risk of premature birth and the baby having to spend time on the neonatal unit, compared to women who have not contracted Covid-19.

Information for businesses

Guidance for businesses

Businesses can help stop the spread of Covid-19 by:

  • Promoting regular testing
  • Promoting uptake of the vaccine
  • Continuing to emphasise Hands – Face – Space – Fresh Air

If an employee is required by law to self-isolate they may be eligible for the Test and Trace Payment, the scheme is running until September 30 2021.

Support is also available for businesses during an outbreak.

Advice for businesses


Keep testing

Testing regularly protects us all

Testing remains an essential part of stopping the spread of Covid-19. Twice a week testing helps protect the people we love.

You should still test regularly even if you’ve had both doses of the vaccination. Rapid lateral flow tests only take 30 minutes to process and they help to keep life moving.
