The quarantine period is continuous from the day you arrive in England and lasts for the next 10 full consecutive days after the day you arrived up until midnight of day 10. For the purposes of counting days, the day after arrival is considered ‘day 1’. This period is necessary because it can take up to 10 days for COVID-19 symptoms to appear.
You will need to take your day 2 COVID-19 test on or before day 2 of your quarantine period, and day * on or after day 8. Your date of arrival in UK is day 0. You start counting day 1 to 8 from the next day of your arrival..
If there is no one in your household or bubble who can post the test for processing, you may leave the premises to post your test but you must maintain social distancing.
You must quarantine for 10 days beginning on the day after the test was taken. You do not need to take a test on day 8.
You will need to quarantine immediately and continue for 10 days. The day of the test counts as day 0. Your household will also need to quarantine immediately and continue for 10 days, with the day of the test counting as day 0.
If you’ve quarantined for 10 full days (where day 0 is the day you took the test or had symptoms) and received a negative result to both your day-2 and day-8 tests, and you are well, you may leave the place where you’re quarantining.
You can also end your quarantine early (provided you have not passed through a red list country in the 10 days before arriving in the UK) through the Test to Release scheme from day 5 onwards. You must still take the day 8 COVID-19 Test.
