Advice for families returning from abroad

You may find the following wording helpful when you become aware of a family retuning from abroad.

Families must quarantine for 10 days and this can include staying:

• In their own home

• With friends or family

• In a hotel or other temporary accommodation that is not a managed quarantine facility.

They must stay in that one place for the full quarantine period and have food and other necessities delivered. They cannot go out to work or school, cannot visit family or friends, must only exercise inside the place where they are quarantining or garden, and must not go shopping.

If they do not have friends or relatives to help you with this, they can request help from NHS Volunteer Responders who can help collecting shopping, medication or for a telephone ‘check-in and chat’. Call 0808 196 3646 (8am to 8pm) to arrange support.
