- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
- Loss of taste or smell
- If yo have been told to self isolate
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
How long to stay at home
if you have symptoms, get a test.https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested
stay at home for 7 days
if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 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 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
