What to do if you test positive for COVID-19
If you have COVID-19 you can pass on the virus to other people for up to ten days from when your infection starts. Many people will no longer be infectious to others after five days.
- try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days;
- avoid meeting people at higher risk from COVID-19 for ten days, especially if their immune system means they're at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19, even if they've had a COVID-19 vaccine.
This starts from the day after you did the test.
If a child or young person aged 18 or under tests positive for COVID-19, they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days.
Children and young people tend to be infectious to others for less time than adults. If they're well and do not have a temperature after three days, there's a much lower risk that they'll pass on COVID-19 to others. This starts from the day after they did the test.

The measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19), although essential, have disrupted people’s day-to-day lives.
As a result of these necessary measures, almost all of us are likely to be spending more time online, including children. This guidance contains resources for parents and carers to help keep their children safe online.
