What to do if you have symptoms?
If you have either a high temperature or a new, continuous cough, the advice is to stay at home for 14 days. Do not go directly to your GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation.
This action will help protect others in your community while you are infectious. While most people will have a mild illness, some older people or people with weakened immune systems or with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease may experience severe illness and we need to protect them.
If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after seven days, contact the NHS 111 online coronavirus service at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
The Council Offices are now closed to the public and residents should use alternative ways of contacting the Council rather than visiting in person.
'My Account', the Council's online facility, gives residents online access to council services 24/7. You can register or access it at:
