The aim of this post is to assist members that are concerned about self-isolation issues and pay related matters
If a family member shows signs of COVID-19 (as determined by NHS e.g. high-temp or new persistent dry cough) then you are to go into self-isolation for 14-days.
To get paid by Royal Mail you’ll need to get a medical note, this can be sourced by clicking on this link https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note – without this then the second week would not attract pay as you would only have a 7-day self-certificated absence, without a medical note for the last 7-days.
If you show signs as described above, then its 7-days self-isolation, if you are better, then you return to work, if you feel unwell still you need to get medical advice.
Hope this has helped
