If you are isolating because you have COVID-19 or been told to isolate by NHS Test & Trace

If you are isolating due to COVID-19 symptoms, or have been told to by NHS Test and Trace, you will need to stay home and not leave the house for 10 days.

During this period, you should order groceries and food to be delivered, or have friends and family bring you food. Anyone delivering food to you should leave it outside your door and stand more than 2 metres away from the door or leave before you open the door.

If you are unable to access food through delivery, friends, or family during your period of isolation you can request a food parcel for two weeks by completing the Newham Food Alliance form.
