COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus. Please stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms.
•    a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
•    a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home and testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

How long to stay at home?
•    if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
•    if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you 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 for 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.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
•    you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
•    your condition gets worse
•    your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
