Hi,I'm due back on Monday after isolating due to being covid positive,  do I need to do another test before I go back? I've got a pack of lateral flow tests so that's not a problem.

No you don’t need another test. As long as you have isolated for ten days. In fact if you do a test you will probably still show as positive for up to three months. The cough can also carry on for a while but you aren’t contagious after ten days
As long as your temperature is ok.

Going to be honest, if you were my co-worker I'd be asking if you tested negative before returning.  I wouldn't be insulted if people avoid you when you return , CEO people are back at work and even though they're double jabbed they're still nervous of getting virus as I'm sure everyone is .

No need to retest for 90 days unless you develop covid symptoms again!

Technically you can't leave your house until midnight. But in my store they have made people start at midnight.

Your paid while isolating to begin with, so they could ask but they shouldn't.. And you shouldn't accept unless you want overtime...BUT and I mean BUT make sure they are referring to it as overtime, and not as a make up shift... Otherwise they are screwing you over and owe you money.
