Would setting up a guest network be enough to keep me safe and isolate an untrusted/Potentially dangerous machine from my trusted ones?

I will be setting up a machine that would probably get infected soon, but will my work pc and other devices be safe as long as that one is connected only to my guest network?

There is all sorts of procedures like DMZ setup and configuring a firewall , though I am not very familiar but I can learn if necessary. I am wondering if guest network will be enough.

One more question if it is okay. If my trusted pc is connected with ethernet to my router, I’m assuming the guest network would not be able to talk with that either, is that correct?
