 COVID-19 (coronavirus)


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).


Everyone in your house must stay at home.


Do not go to your GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital:



  • if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for at least 7 days;

  • if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms;

  • however, if you develop symptoms during this 14-day period, you’ll need to stay at home for 7 days from the day your symptoms started (regardless of what day you are on in the original 14-day period);

  • 7 days after your symptoms started, if you do not have a high temperature, you do not need to continue to self-isolate. If you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal. You do not need to self-isolate if you just have a cough after 7 days, as a cough can last for several weeks after the infection has gone;

  • if you have symptoms and live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else they can stay with for the 14-day isolation period;

  • it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
