Coronavirus Isolation Note

Posted on: Mar 24,2020

You must Get a Coronavirus Isolation Note  if you have been told to stay at home because you:

  • have symptoms of coronavirus and have used the 111 online coronavirus service
  • have been told by a healthcare professional that you have symptoms of coronavirus
  • live with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus

You can self-certify for the first seven days off work so you don’t need any evidence for your employer. After that, your employer may ask for evidence of sickness absence and you can provide your coronavirus isolation note as evidence of the advice to self-isolate.

If you don’t have an email address, you can send the coronavirus isolation note to a trusted family member or friend, or directly to your employer. The service can also be used to generate an isolation note on behalf of someone else.
