LONDON, Dec 22 - The British government said from Wednesday it was reducing the COVID-19 self-isolation period to seven days from 10 days for people in England who have a negative outcome on a flow test two days in a row.

Rapid lateral flow tests, provided by the National Health Service, can be self-administered by individuals at home and give results in 15-30 minutes.
As a result of a negative lateral flow, if the result is given on day six and day seven of their self-isolation period, a government agency said, that the people who are affected by the outcome of a negative outcome are free if they cannot isolate for 10 days, it said.
The UKHSA said it strongly advised those who leave their self-isolation after seven days to limit their contact with others in crowded or uncontrolled places, work from home and minimize the possibility of contact with the most vulnerable people to COVID-19.
