Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

  • a high temperature (you feel hot to touch on your chest or back)
  • a new continuous cough (this means you've started coughing repeatedly)
  • or a change to, or loss of, your sense of taste and smell

It is important that you do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have symptoms and that you follow the advice below:

  • If you have symptoms, stay at home for 10 days.
  • If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 10 days from the day the first person got symptoms. 
  • If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 10 days.
  • If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
