If you have the symptoms of COVID-19
If you have developed a new or continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature in the last 7 days, stay at home for 7 days from the start of your symptoms even if you think your symptoms are mild. Do not got to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. You should phone 111 if:
your symptoms worsen during home isolation, especialy if you're in a high or extremely high risk group
breathlessness develops or worsens, particularly if you're in a high or extremely high risk group
your symptoms haven't improved in 7 days
If you have a medical emergency, phone 999 and tell them you have COVID-19 symptoms.
Do the people I live with need to take any action?
If you live with other people and have symptoms, they'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the start of your symptoms even if they don't have symptoms themselves. If they develop symptoms within the 14 days, they need to stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms began. They should do this even if it takes them over the 14-day isolation period
There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with Coronavirus.
- wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds
- use hand sanitiser gell if soap and water are not available
- wash your hands as soon as you get home
- cover your month and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
- touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
