If your LFD or PCR test is positive, then you must self-isolate and inform your line manager and/or clinical lead. You must self-isolate for a minimum of 5 full days. The isolation period includes the day the symptoms started (or the day your positive test was taken if you did not have symptoms at the time), also described as Day 0. You should not take a further LFD test before Day 5. If you have no fever and feel well enough to return to work from Day 6, you must have had a negative LFD test on Day 5 and Day 6 and reported this at Gov.uk. We request that staff required to take a LFD test do so early in the morning on both Day five and Day six, thereby enabling an immediate return to work on Day six. Those leaving self-isolation before day 10 are advised to limit close contact with others outside their household. If following two negative LFD tests you return to work on day 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10, then you are asked to avoid taking a break together with colleagues, and if involved in direct (less than 2m) patient care asked to wear a fit-tested non-valved FFP3 mask or equivalent when providing care, and continue with daily LFD tests as an extra precaution until Day 11.
