New legal duty to self-isolate comes into force 28 September

From today, people in England will be required by law to self-isolate if they test positive or are contacted by NHS Test and Trace. This law has been introduced to ensure compliance with self-isolation rules and to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Fines will also be introduced from today for those breaching self-isolation rules, starting at £1,000, in line with the existing penalty for breaking quarantine after international travel. This could increase to up to £10,000 for repeat offences and the most serious breaches, including for those preventing others from self-isolating.

Employers who force or allow staff to come to work who they know should be self-isolating will also be liable for fines of up to £10,000.


Rule of 6 Applies from Monday 14 September 2020

From 14 September, new laws prohibiting social gatherings of more than six people come into effect in England. The new ‘rule of six’ simplifies and strengthens the rules on social gatherings, making them easier to understand and easier for the police to enforce. It means that – apart from a set of limited exemptions including education and work – any social gatherings of more than six people indoors or outdoors will be against the law.


Extension of self-isolation period to 10 days

The self-isolation period for people that have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or that have received a positive test result has increased from 7 to 10 days.  Testing is available to anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19, whatever their age. Tests are free and can be requested through a single portal on GOV.​UK


Quarantine after Overseas Travel

The government is advising against all non-essential travel to certain countries based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.  People returning from those countries to the UK are required to self-isolate for 14 days.  If you travel overseas after 18 August, it is essential you check https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out whether you are required to self-isolate.  If you are, your child MUST stay away from school for 14 days from the first day of your return to the UK.
