The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Self-Isolation) (England) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2021 Published Date: 29/11/2021

The effect of The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Self-Isolation) (England) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2021 are that anyone in England who is notified by NHS Test and Trace (or other specified bodies) that they are a close contact of a suspected or confirmed case of the Omicron variant will be legally required to self-isolate regardless of age or vaccination status.

The affected individuals will also be unable to benefit from the exemption from the self-isolate requirement which applies to those who participate in a Daily Contact Testing Scheme. The length and requirements of the self-isolation period required under this new provision remains the same as for non-Omicron contacts.
