Advice for those with symptoms: 

You must self-isolate for 7 days if you have either:

•            a high temperature AND/OR

•            a new continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're self-isolating.

Anyone living with you must self-isolate for 14 days, even if they are asymptomatic.

It is appropriate to contact NHS 111 if:

•            you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

•            your condition gets worse

•            your symptoms do not get better after 7 days.

You can contact NHS 111 online here, or by calling 111 using a phone. Please use the online service if you can. 

Recommendations for everyone: 

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • 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, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.

These outings should be minimised as much as possible. 

We must all continue to wash our hands, for at least 20 seconds, as frequently as needed. Please refer to the following World Health Organisation Infographics below for more information.
