Others at increased risk of severe illness
Close contacts should always adhere to public health advice. Advice for close contacts of COVID-19 may vary depending on a number of factors including: previous infection, vaccination status and whether you have been in contact with a confirmed case who has travelled from abroad. For further information please see 'Guidance on the impact of vaccination on contact tracing', and 'FAQs on immunity and infection'. Guidance will be updated to reflect updated advice in due course.
