STAY AT HOME AND SELF-ISOLATE IF YOU ARE DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS
If you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back,
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly.
DO NOT come to the GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home - testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
How long do you have to stay at home?
- if you have symptoms, stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days.
- if you live with other people, they should also stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.
