Coronavirus Update

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are a new continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature (37.8C or greater).

If you’ve developed a new continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature in the last 7 days, stay at home for 7 days from the start of your symptoms even if you think your symptoms are mild. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital.

Phone 111 if your symptoms:
• have not improved after 7 days
• are severe or you have shortness of breath
• worsen during home isolation

You should also phone 111 if you develop breathlessness or it worsens, especially if you:
• are 70 years old or over
• have underlying poor health
• have heart or lung problems
• have a weakened immune system, including cancer
• have diabetes

If you have a medical emergency, phone 999 and tell them you have COVID-19 symptoms.
