Symptoms of coronavirus

The latest government guidance​ is that you, and everyone living in your household, should stay at home - if you have either:

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if have the symptons listed above.

11 will tell you what to do and help you get a test if you need one. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home. 

Please do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

How long to self-isolate

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, stay at home for seven days from when your symptoms started.

If you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll usually need to self-isolate for 14 days.

The NHS Test and Trace service

The Government has moved to the next stage of action to combat coronavirus with the introduction of a new test and trace service to protect our friends and family from infection, and protect our NHS.

Anyone with symptoms will be tested and their close contacts will be traced, including:

  • those in the same household
  • people with whom they have been in direct contact – or within two metres for more than 15 minutes

If you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive, follow the NHS advice, even if you have no symptoms, to avoid unknowingly spreading the virus.
