What is the latest government advice re self-isolation for employees? : The Government has extended the self-isolation period from 7 to 10 days

30 Jul 2020, 18:45

The situation is constantly changing, and you should check this guidance for the latest advice on this area.

The Government has extended the self-isolation period from 7 to 10 days for those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or a positive test result.

From 30 July 2020, the current position is that employees could be isolating for between 10 and 14 days and this could be extended by around a week if they develop symptoms during self-isolation.

If employees are not able to work from home during self-isolation, absences should be treated as sickness absence, “Sick Coronavirus” absence type on PSP. Managers should then choose the relevant absent code:

SAU071 Coronavirus Confirmed Case
SBU070 Coronavirus Symptoms
SCU070 Coronavirus Self Isolation

You can access up to date guidance on what steps to take whilst self-isolating on the NHS website, available here.(https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavir ... treatment/) Employees should fully comply with instructions provided by the NHS and keep their line manager informed.

I have been self-isolating for 10 days due to a continuous cough, but I still have a cough what should I do?

After self-isolating for 10 days, if you do not have a high temperature you do not need to continue to self-isolate.

If you still have a high temperature, you need to keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal.

You do not need to continue to self-isolate if you just have a cough after 10 days. A cough can last for several weeks after the infection has gone.

What the flying f?

A confirmed Covid patient who still has symptoms has to come back to the office after 10 days as long as they don't have a fever?

This is mental! Union needs to jump on that ASAP.

That's standard government advice, if well enough and fever free for 48 hours employees can return to their jobs on day 11 (previously it was on day 8)
