Coronavirus (COVID-19): Staying at home and self-isolation

While guidelines are changing and being updated frequently one guideline remains: If you have symptoms of, or have been diagnosed with, COVID-19 you must STILL remain at home until you are well.

Symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you have:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature), or;

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual), or;

  • anosmia - the loss or a change in your normal sense of smell (it can also affect your sense of taste)

Everyone in your house must stay at home. See full guidance HERE

If you have symptoms you can get tested for COVID-19

  • Everyone must help stop coronavirus spreading. 

  • Only go outside for permitted reasons. If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times.

  • Groups of up to 10 people who do not share a household can meet outdoors, maintaining social distancing.

  • Groups of up to 6 people who do not share a household can meet indoors, maintaining social distancing.

  • Avoid touching your face and wash your hands as soon as you get home.

  • You can spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms.
