Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

The current NHS advice is to stay at home for 7 days 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.

 

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

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

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital unless advised, as you could risk spreading the virus.

Read the NHS’s advice about staying at home.

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

The current NHS advice is to do the following:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds

  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
