More about this product
When you return to the United Kingdom you must self-isolate. If you are returning from a country on the so-called “red list” you must self-isolate in a hotel. In all other countries (also known as the Common Travel Area) you must self-isolate at home.
If you are self-isolating at home or in a hotel, you must do a test on or before Day 2 of your self-isolation. The day you arrive back in the United Kingdom is classified as Day 0.
This test is used by the Government to detect different strains of the virus, but a negative result will make no difference to your self-isolation as you must isolate for 10 full days.
You must also do a test on or after Day 8 of your self-isolation. The purpose of this test is to show that you are free of the virus and can leave quarantine.
You must not end your self-isolation until 10 full days have passed. This means the earliest you can leave home quarantine is on day 11.
