Do I need to socially distance from my flatmates in our flat for the first two weeks?
There is no need to self-isolate or socially distance yourself from your flatmates when you first arrive, unless you are travelling from an area where the 14 day self-isolation period applies. You should check whether you need to self-isolate if travelling to the UK from overseas here.
If you are self-isolating because you’ve arrived from overseas, you must stay in your flat and keep your distance from others. You should not go out for supplies or exercise until your period of self-isolation is over. More information on what you should and shouldn’t do whilst self-isolating can be found here.
Should you develop symptoms of Covid-19 you must also then isolate. Further information on self-isolation can be found here.
