My test result is 'Positive'. How long do I have to isolate for?

Recommended and enforced isolation periods can vary depending on the country you are in at the time of your positive test, so please always check local government advice.


If you are in the UK, according to current Government guidance you and anyone you live with need to self-isolate for a period of 10 days, starting on the day you returned a positive Covid-19 test result.
