How do I / how does my student avoid consecutive periods of self isolation as a household close contact??

If you live with other people, you should stay separated from them during your self-isolation period.

Physically distance

This means:

  • stay and sleep in a separate room
  • use a separate bathroom if available, or clean a shared bathroom after use
  • do not be in the same room as another person (even if they are also in isolation)
  • do not share household items including dishes, cups, towels and bedding. After using these items, wash them thoroughly with soap.

Practice good hygiene

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser:
    • before entering an area where other people may go
    • before touching things used by other people
    • after using the bathroom
    • after coughing or sneezing
    • before putting on, and after removing face masks
    • before eating or drinking.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Regularly clean all surfaces you touch as much as possible (such as tabletops, doorknobs, and bathroom fixtures) by using household disinfectant or diluted bleach solution.
  • Wear a mask in shared areas or when caring for other members of your household.
