My wife and I visited my eldest daughter's family last

This answer was rated:

My wife and I visited my eldest daughter's family last Sunday. Our 10 year old grand-daughter tested positive for Covid yesterday. My wife and I have just produced negative results with a Lateral Flow Test.
JA: Are you and your wife experiencing any symptoms, such as a cough, fever, or shortness of breath?
Customer: No. Do we need to isolate?
JA: The Doctor will be able to answer that. Where is she located? How widespread is COVID-19 in her area?
Customer: My grand daughter lives in Twickenham. I don't know how widespread it is in their area. We live in Loughton, Essex.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in her medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: She is autistic.

Since it was 6 days ago and you are tested negative, you do not have transmission.

You may not worry.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

Many thanks for your help. My youngest daughter visited my grand daughter on Monday. If she also has a negative Lateral Flow Test, is she also not required to isolate?

If she is also negative, there is no need for isolation.
