Isolation applies to people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are suspected of having COVID-19 due to having symptoms.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and are being tested, you will be asked to isolate (stay home) until you receive your negative result.

If you have been told to isolate because you are a confirmed case of COVID-19 you must not leave your house or suitable premises until you are released from isolation. You must isolate for the full amount of time that you have been instructed to or until Public Health or an Authorised Officer informs you that you no longer need to quarantine or isolate.

See the Isolation Direction for more information.
