Online Isolation Notes for Coronavirus Launched

Mar 20, 2020

The UK government have today launched a new online isolation note service to enable people with symptoms of coronavirus or those living with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work, to provide their employers with evidence they have been advised to self-isolate.

The government says the notes can be accessed through the NHS website and NHS 111 online and we can confirm that the service is now live and working.

According to Matt Hancock, the Health & Social Care Secretary, if an employee does not have an email address, they can have the note sent to a trusted family member or friend, or directly to their employer. The service can also be used to generate an isolation note on behalf of someone else.
