Fiduciary isolation
From 0 to 5 years (i.e. up to 6 years old): always exempt from isolation if travelling with a parent who is also exempt from isolation because he/she has a vaccination certificate (or a certificate of recovery). From 6 to 17 years (i.e. up to 18 years old): exempt from isolation if accompanied by a parent with an appropriate vaccination or recovery certificate; however, where required by legislation, they must undergo molecular or antigenic testing: in the absence of testing, even if the parent has adequate certification, the child is still required to undergo isolation.
