Living with Covid

This week the Prime Minister confirmed the Government’s plan for Living with Covid, which means the domestic legal restrictions ended on 24 February, as we begin to treat Covid-19 as other infectious diseases such as flu.

The remaining domestic restrictions in England will be removed:

  • The legal requirement to self-isolate ends 24 February
  • Until 1 April, the advice is to stay at home if you test positive
  • Test and Trace Support Payment scheme ends 24 February
  • Routine contact tracing ends, including venue check-ins on the NHS COVID-19 app.

Living with Covid Plan


Changes to self-isolation and contact tracing

changes to self-isolation

From today (24 February) in England, if you test positive for Covid-19 you are no longer legally required to self-isolate.

You will still be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least five full days and continue to follow the guidance until receiving two negative test results on consecutive days.

You will no longer be legally required to self-isolate if you are an unvaccinated close contact, and will no longer be advised to test for seven days if you are a fully vaccinated close contact.

Test and Trace Support Payment
