COVID-19: How long should I self-isolate for?
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, self-isolate for 7 days.
After 7 days:
- if you do not have a high temperature, you can stop self-isolating
- if you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal
- you do not need to keep self-isolating if you just have a cough after 7 days. A cough can last for weeks after the infection has gone.
