I live in University-managed accommodation and have been told to self-isolate but I have been for a COVID-test and it is negative, do I still need to self-isolate?

You must continue to self-isolate for 10 days if somebody in your household has tested positive.

Even if your results are negative, if somebody in your household (or social bubble), including your University-owned or managed flat, has tested positive, you must continue to self-isolate with them for 10 days.
