Stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives
The government has announced that the UK has moved into the “delay” phase and has changed advice for the public.
What to do if you have symptoms
The advice has changed about how long you should stay at home if you have symptoms and now considers whether you live alone or with others.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
There is also new advice on social distancing for vulnerable groups.
You should follow the guidance that applies to you as this will help to protect others in your community.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital with mild symptoms.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
The NHS will not be testing those self-isolating with mild symptoms.
