Self-isolation - Changes from 29 October 2021

Self-isolation has changed when somebody in your household has coronavirus symptoms or has tested positive for coronavirus.

Fully vaccinated or aged 5 to 17

If someone in your household has symptoms or has tested positive and you are fully vaccinated or aged 5 to 17 you should self-isolate and take a PCR test. If your test is negative you can stop isolating.


Not fully vaccinated

If someone in your household has tested positive and you are not fully vaccinated you should self-isolate for 10 days. You should take a PCR test on day 2 and day 8. You should self-isolate for 10 days even if your tests are negative.


Children aged under 5

Children aged under 5 do not have to self-isolate or take a test if they have been a contact of a positive case in their household or otherwise.


Main points

If you have any coronavirus symptoms (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change of taste or smell), you should self-isolate at home and get a test. You should not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Self-isolation applies to adults and children of all ages.

Self-isolation means that you do not leave the house. You should self-isolate straight away if you have symptoms and until you receive the results of a COVID-19 PCR test.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been told to self-isolate by the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) service, you must stay at home. You are breaking the law and could be fined if you do not stay at home and self-isolate.

The self-isolation period is 10 days from either:

  • the day immediately following the date of the start of your symptoms
  • the day immediately following the date of your positive test
  • the date confirmed to you by the TTP service if they identify you as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.


Quicker, slicker route to Cardiff Works

Cardiff Works, the Council's in-house recruitment agency, has stream-lined its application processes to make it quicker and easier for job candidates to apply for temporary roles.

Applicants interested in registering to apply for any of the wide range of temporary positions within the authority, available via Cardiff Works, can complete an online application form and assessment - speeding up the process that previously required applicants to attend an assessment in person.

Cabinet Member for Finance, Performance and Modernisation, Cllr Chris Weaver, said: "The Council is committed to helping people into good jobs and careers, and to removing barriers people face to getting into a job. At the moment, we have a wide range of temporary vacancies within the authority and registering with Cardiff Works offers applicants the flexibility to try different roles, learn new skills and open doors to other opportunities, which could lead to longer term employment.

"Jobs are available not just in admin or clerical roles - there's a huge variety of opportunities right now that reflect the wide range of services that the Council delivers across the city.

"Making it easier to register with Cardiff Works, by enabling people to complete the application form and take the assessment online, will, we hope, encourage even more people to give Cardiff Works a go."
