Entering managed isolation

The purpose of managed isolation is to ensure people do not have COVID-19 before they return to our communities.

Tens of thousands of people have completed their managed isolation stay safely, and have returned to their loved ones and friends.

You will be met by staff from the managed isolation and quarantine programme at your facility. They will be in regular contact with you and can provide any support you need.

You will also get an information pack with more detail about your stay.
