Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Anyone who has a high temperature (37.8c or higher) or a new persistent continuous cough must:
- stay at home for seven days
- if you live with someone who has symptoms, you need to stay home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms.
It is no longer relevant whether you have travelled, or are aware of contact with someone who could have the virus. Do not visit your GP, hospital, pharmacy or other medical centre.
If you or someone you care for needs medical attention for Coronavirus symptoms, call 111 in the first instance, unless you need emergency help.
