End of self-isolation requirement for COVID positive cases

Published by GBC News

Those who test positive for COVID are no longer legally required to self-isolate.

The Director of Public Health says immunity is high due to vaccines, with COVID infections mostly causing mild disease.

As of Friday, you are no longer legally obliged to stay home if you test positive for COVID. However, you are still advised not to go out for at least five days, up to a maximum of ten

You must not go to ERS, GHA or Care Agency premises - and you should limit interactions with others, especially the immunosuppressed and vulnerable.

Testing requirements for entry into Gibraltar have also ended, regardless of which country you're coming from.

The Director of Public Health says these changes come at a good time, as there are currently no new variants of concern globally that could cause a fast spike in local cases.

However, Dr Helen Carter said Public Health would continue to closely monitor trends, and reintroduce regulations if needed.
