Rachael Maskell out of self-isolation after three days

York Central MP Rachael Maskell

Rachael Maskell is out of self-isolation.

The York Central MP decided to self-isolate after meeting with health minister Nadine Dorries to discuss mental health services in York.

It later transpired that the minister had coronavirus.

Ms Maskell was advised to self-isolate for 14 days. But now, after just three, that advice has changed.

She wrote on Twitter this evening:

  • I have just received a message from Public Health England: We have now moved away from the delay phase of the Coronavirus response. This means that unless you have symptoms, you no longer need to self-isolate.

    I’m free!! Thank you to all those who have been so supportive.
