Having just started working from home yesterday, this afternoon I received the above message, via the Covid-19 tracker app, saying that I have been a close contact of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19. I don’t have symptoms so don’t have to do anything drastic, just restrict my movements for 5 days. I was going to do the latter anyway, so the timing is somewhat ironic!

Oh and they’re going to send me an “antigen kit”, presumably to keep me occupied for the next few days. It should be fun because I’ve never made an antigen before.

Incidentally the message isn’t very clearly worded. I think I was a close contact on 6th December of someone who subsequently tested positive. That may account for why I have only got this message on 10th!
