Anyone who is contacted by test and trace after being in contact with someone who has had tested positive and told to self-isolate will face the same rules.

The brand-new legal responsibility needs individuals to self-isolate if they evaluate favorable for coronavirus, or are traced as a close contact, from 28 September.

To ensure people stick to the rules, the government has said Test and Trace call handlers will be making "regular contact" with those who are supposed to be isolating and will escalate any suspicion of rule breaking with the police and local authorities.
