Sick notes for self-isolation
In light of the current situation, it is inevitable that people may need to self-isolate at home, even when they have no symptoms of illness.
The current rules are that a sick note can only be issued when an individual has had more than 7 continuous days off sick due to an illness (including weekends). For periods of illness less than 7 days you can complete a self-certification and give this to your employer.
If you have been told to self-isolate for 7 days or more, either by official advice, NHS111 or a health professional, you will be able to get an isolation note on www.111.nhs.uk/isolation-note. This would be available to those with Coronavirus symptoms and also those living with someone who has symptoms.
