The minimum self-isolation period for people testing positive for Covid-19 in England has been reduced to five days.

The quarantine period was reduced after a review of the medical evidence, to help ease staff shortages across the economy, however people will need to produce negative lateral flow tests on days five and six of their isolation.

Meanwhile, 16 and 17-year-olds are now able to book a booster vaccine or attend a walk-in vaccination centre in England.

Invitations will initially be sent to the 40,000 teenagers who had a second vaccine dose at least three months ago.
