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

If you’ve developed a new continuous cough and/or a fever/high temperature and/or change in sense of smell or taste in the last 7 days then please self isolate at home for 10 days from the start of your symptoms even if you think your symptoms are mild. Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. Anyone who lives with you must also isolate but for 14 days. If they develop symptoms then they must isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms.

From Thursday 28th May if you have Covid-19 symptoms contact NHS Inform or phone 0800 028 2816 to book a test.

Phone 111 if your symptoms:
• have not improved after 10 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 if you have COVID-19 symptoms.
