INSURANCE LINE

NO NEED FOR AN INSURANCE LINE FOR COVID SYMPTOMS - you can print a isolation certificate here - your employer does not required a fit note from the GP if you are absent due to covid or isolating due to a family member with covid : https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note  . This will cover your first 14 days of absence, if you required further time off, a self certificate should be use to cover the period of day 15 to 21 and only then should you contact the GP to request an insurance line (fit note).
