If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough, a high temperature or anosmia (loss of sense of smell) you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. However, if you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. Do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP Practice.If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do. Only call 111 direct if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service. For the latest Covid-19 advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
