Stay at home if you have Coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home 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
  • a loss of taste and/or smell

 

 

 

The latest advice is to self-isolate for 14 days  if you have a new continuous cough, high temperature or loss of taste or smell.

If you live with other people, the entire household should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person gets symptoms.

 

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else from them to stay for 14 days, If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as  possible.
