I was in a van all day with someone who then went home ill, should I self-isolate?
If anyone becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature in the business or workplace they should be sent home and advised to follow the government’s stay at home
If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves. They
should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell with symptoms consistent with coronavirus infection.
Anyone who has a new, continuous cough or a high temperature should be advised to quickly and directly return home and to remain there and initiate household isolation.
My colleagues have asthma but no other symptoms and have decided to self-isolate for 2 weeks. Should they not self-isolate for 12 weeks as in 2 weeks’ time the virus will be even more advanced?
If they have received a note from their GP advising them to self-isolate for 12 weeks, then they should try and comply with this advice.
I don’t drive and my colleague who normally picks me up is self-isolating so how do I get to work?
Speak to your line manager who may be able to make alternative arrangements to have you reassigned to work with another colleague who may be able to pick you up,or may be able to arrange a lift to work. Ultimately it is your responsibility to attend work so you must speak to your line manager if you have any reason why you cannot get into work.
