    Close contacts of people in England who have tested positive for Covid will not need to self-isolate if they have received both of their Covid jabs, or if they are under 18, the health secretary, Sajid Javid, has told the Commons. People will still need to self-isolate if they test positive for the virus. ‘This new approach means we can manage the virus in a way that’s proportionate to the pandemic while maintaining the freedoms that are so important to us all,’ Javid said.

    Double-jabbed contacts won’t need to self-isolate from 16 August, says Javid
