Who to tell if you’re Covid-19 test result has come back negative
If you experienced symptoms, took a covid test and received a negative result, then you will be free to return to normal when you feel well enough to do so. But if you were required to self-isolate as a close contact of a person who had tested positive, then a negative test result does not change the self-isolation period and you must continue to self-isolate.
