Employees do not need to provide a GP fit note to be absent from work with Coronavirus symptoms. 

However, employers must maintain records of staff absence and payment of SSP. 

"If an employer requires evidence from their employee who is in isolation, the employee can download an isolation note which is available on the NHS website," said Lisa Mcleod, payroll manager at Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers.
