What’s changing with self-isolation in Wales

09, November 2021

If you were in a household with someone who tests positive but you are double vaccinated, you did not need to self-isolate unless you have symptoms or a positive test yourself.

New Welsh Government guidance is that adults who are fully vaccinated and children and young people aged five to 17 should self-isolate until they have received a negative PCR test if someone in their household has symptoms or tests positive for Covid 19.

People who are not vaccinated will still have to self-isolate for 10 days following contact with someone who has tested positive, including close contacts outside of their household.

If someone in your household tests positive, you too will need to self-isolate until you have taken a PCR test. If that test is negative you no longer have to isolate.

If it is positive, you too will have to isolate.

You will also need to isolate while you await your test appointment and result.
