NO fit note required for first 28 days of illness.
Employees can normally self-certify sickness absence for the first seven days. Temporarily, they can self-certify for 28 days, to enable GPs to focus on the COVID-19 booster programme and emergency care.
"If an employee goes off sick on or after the 10 December 2021, up to and including 26 January 2022, your cannot ask them for proof of sickness until they have been off for 28 days or more."
