Still testing positive 7 days since my first positive. Can I go out now?

    Hello all,

    I tested positive last week, two antigen tests confirmed, very faint lines. No symptoms, felt a tiny bit achy in the night of the test but nothing since then, and tbh I could put those achy pains down to hypochondria after testing positive for the first time.

    I tested again this morning and still positive ( very thick lines now), still no symptoms.

    Am I right in saying, from my interpretation of the HSE guidelines, that even if I'm positive, after 7 days of the first positive I'm allowed go out? I'm assuming that I'm not contagious anymore, is that true?

    I don't necessarily have anywhere to be, but would like to go back to the shops and gym. Have no real issue isolating a bit more if needed though.
