Two housemates say they were found positive for Covid 19.

    However they won't show the results to the rest of us. We don't want to self isolate if they are lying. They are not self isolating and going out socialising.

    Any suggestions what can be done to put them to task and have peace of mind for the other housemates?

    I'll be writing an eviction letter for them to leave at end of the month. The are aware of that.

    Change the locks until they show you the results.

    Are you the property owner and do you live there?

    You are asking them to show you confidential medical information, why would you think you are entitled to see that?

    They are certainly being inconsiderate/being dicks, but unless they are licencees, I’m not sure on what grounds you could legally evict them, sharing confidential medical information certainly wouldn’t be one of them.

    Edit: I see from another one of your threads they are licencees and you do live there, so drive on, they are only guests in your house. But you still can’t make them share medical information they don’t want to.

    Once again I will tell you that you can get rid of them immediately. Allowing them to stay longer is on you.

    If you don't have symptoms and you've either had covid and recovered or have had your booster more than 7 days ago you don't need to self isolate. Check the hse website for specifics re antigen tests etc.

    Housemates sound like dicks but I'm not sure what difference it would make to you seeing their result. I'm surprised they told you they were positive if they are just going to act as normal. Try to keep away from them,open windows as much as possible and look forward to them being gone soon.

    Well, I know somebody who had their booster more than 7 days ago and currently has Covid, and is very much self-isolating, so I wonder about the veracity of this.

    Sorry I should have said, that's if you have a negative antigen or PCR. It's from the hse website.

    So if you don't have covid, don't have symptoms, have your booster or recovered recently you don't have to isolate if you're a close contact.
