Do I need to stay at home if I fall ill with Covid-19?

There is no longer a formal government recommendation to stay at home specific to Covid-19, as there was during the pandemic.

However, to avoid infecting others, it is good to stay at home if you have a fever or other symptoms of diseases such as Covid-19, influenza or stomach flu. This is according to 1177, which provides medical advice.
