NHS Test and Trace

The NHS test and trace service will contact people who need to self-isolate because they have had “close” recent contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.

Any contacts who need to self-isolate will be contacted by phone, letter, email or text message setting out how long they need to self-isolate for.

Affected employees must provide this notification to their manager and record the self-isolation period on self-service. The manager must upload the notification to the employees DPF.

The period of self-isolation will be for 14 days from the point of most recent contact with the person who has tested positive for coronavirus.

If the employee is able to work from home they should continue to work unless they become unfit to work, then the COVID-19 absence reporting process should be followed.
