Covid-19 - Coronavirus

For reliable information about Coronavirus please see the NHS web-site which includes information on symptoms, what to do if you have it, how to avoid getting it and links to the government web-site giving information on Coronavirus.  Click here to go to the NHS site.

If you believe you have Coronavirus do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.

 

Urgent advice: Use the 111 online coronavirus service if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

These are the main symptoms of coronavirus.

 

The 111 online coronavirus service will ask about your symptoms and tell you what to do.

Babies and children

 

Call 111 if you're worried about a baby or child.

 

If they seem very unwell, are getting worse, or you think there's something seriously wrong, call 999.

 

Do not delay getting help if you're worried. Trust your instincts.

Staying at home if you have symptoms (self-isolation)

 

If your symptoms are mild, you'll usually be advised to not leave your home for at least 7 days.

Anyone you live with should not leave your home for 14 days.

This is called self-isolation.

Find out more about self-isolation if you or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms.

Staying at home and away from other people (social distancing)

 

Everyone must stay at home and away from other people to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This is called social distancing.

 

Only leave your home if it's essential

You should only leave your home for very limited purposes:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home

Important

These reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres (3 steps) away from anyone outside of your household.
