Regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed COVID-19 (Coronavirus) cases, if you have a new continuous cough or a high temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher) you should self-isolate for 7 days from the onset of symptoms.  If you have serious symptoms that cannot be managed at home, please use NHS111 online.

After 7 days of self-isolation, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature, you can return to your normal routine.  If you have not had any sign of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, you should use NHS111 online before you leave your home or let visitors in.

A cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the virus infection having cleared.  A persistent cough alone does not mean someone must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.

Testing for Coronovirus will not be offered routinely to individuals staying at home.
