Coronavirus advice

Read the Government Department for Health and Social Care's (DHSC) advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).

The government are advising that if you have the symptoms of coronavirus, such as a high temperature or a new, continuous cough, you should self-isolate for 7 days. If you can't cope with your symptoms at home, they get worse, or are no better after 7 days, use the NHS 111 online service.

If someone in your household develops symptoms of coronavirus, you should self-isolate for 14 days from when their symptoms started. Whole households are being asked to isolate because it's more likely that people living together will infect each other, or may already be infected.

You should also:

  • use disposable tissues to catch coughs and sneezes, and then bin the tissue
  • wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water for 20 seconds, or use sanitiser gel, to kill germs
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth if your hands aren’t clean

If you're under 70, are well, and don't have an underlying health condition, you're advised to limit your social contact where possible. This includes using less public transport, working at home where possible, and considering not going to pubs, bars, theatres and restaurants.

If you're over 70, have an underlying health condition, or are pregnant, you're strongly advised against these activities. It's also advised you significantly limit face-to-face interaction with friends and family, if possible.
