The rules on self-isolation for household contacts has changed.

If anyone from your house is identified as having covid-19 after a positive COVID-19 PCR, you and everyone in the house are advised to self-isolate for 10 days – irrespective of vaccination status, PCR test result and age.

What should I do if my child has COVID 19 symptoms?

It is extremely important that you continue to look out for symptoms of the virus amongst your own family. The most common symptoms are:

  • new, continuous cough
  • fever/high temperature
  • loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste

If your child has symptoms, they should not attend school and you should book them a PCR test straightaway. They should remain at home and everyone in the household should self-isolate until they receive their test results. If the test is negative, everyone can stop isolating (and return to school).

If you do not have symptoms, you can order rapid lateral flow tests for regular testing at home.

The Scottish Government are encouraging everyone to take regular tests, particularly if you’re socialising or mixing with other households.
