The advice for your family with regards to SELF-ISOLATION states that:
If 'you' are the first person in your house to present symptoms you only need to self-isolate for 7 days.
If anyone else in your family/household presents with the symptoms listed above then each individual must self-isolate for a period of 14 days. They can count the other person's 7 days in this if they have lived in the house for the duration of that person's illness. If anyone new enters the house and starts with symptoms, they must isolate for 14 days.
You do not need to call or visit the GP, you do not need to call 111 to go in to self-isolation. If your child's symptoms worsen or if there is no improvement then do call 111 or in medical emergency call 999.
