What to do if you have symptoms
If you have either a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss of, or change in your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), 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/
If you do not have internet access, call 111. For a medial emergency dial 999.
