Do I need to self isolate if I have a cold?

There is no legal requirement to stay at home if you have any symptoms of a cold or other common illness – it is just guidance from the Government.

The guidance, updated on April 1, from GOV.UK reads: “UKHSA guidance sets out that people with symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and who have a high temperature or do not feel well, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with others.

“Those who are asked – or choose to test – and get a positive COVID-19 result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days following the day of their positive result.”
