The Government has announced that those who are double jabbed, or aged under 18, will no longer have to self-isolate if they come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Sajid Javid, the new Health Secretary, has confirmed that from 16th August those who come into contact with others who have tested positive will no longer have to self-isolate if they have received both COVID vaccine doses, or are aged under 18. However, those who test positive will still have to self-isolate. That said, there is no law that forces individuals to take a test - but it may still be a requirement for those travelling internationally. Further information on changes to travel is expected to be given later this week. The news means that life really can return to normal this summer, with the new school year starting in September without the need for whole swathes of students to be sent home. The 'bubbles' system is being officially scrapped, the Education Secretary has confirmed. Individuals must allow 2 weeks to pass after having their second jab before they are allowed to be exempt from self-isolating. Those aged under 18 will have a 4 month grace period to give them enough time to be vaccinated. Advice will be issued as to whether individuals should get tested, dependent on their age. Sajid Javid has today said: "I understand that some people are cautious about their idea of easing restrictions, but we must balance the risks - the risks of a virus that has diminished but not defeated, against the risks of keeping these restrictions and the health, social and economic hardship that we know they bring. "This pandemic is far from over and we will continue to proceed with caution. "But we're increasingly confident that our plan is working and that we can soon begin a new chapter based on the foundations of personal responsibility and common sense rather than the blunt instrument of rules and regulations."
