What is a self-declaration?

A “self-declaration” is what many companies, shops and leisure and travel providers may require in order to allow access to their establishments or services. Essentially, it is an honour system, whereby you “self-declare” whether you have any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in close contact with someone that has been diagnosed with or presumed to have COVID-19, or that you have travelled somewhere that required you to self-isolate upon return. If you self-declare accurately, then everyone around you will be safer. And if everyone around you self-declares accurately, then you will be safer. We have to come together as a society during this pandemic to battle this virus effectively and keep as many people as possible safe and out of the hospital. Until there is an effective vaccine, this is our best strategy.
