Symptoms of coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath
  • loss of sense of smell and/or sense of taste

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness, but it is best to self-isolate at home.

How long to stay at home
  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people with symptoms, you 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, they should be shielded from others; the NHS has asked particularly at-risk people to remain at home for 12 weeks.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

How to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus (social distancing)

Everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading.

It is particularly important for people who:

  • are 70 or over
  • have a long-term condition
  • are pregnant
  • have a weakened immune system.

There are things you can do to help stop viruses like coronavirus spreading.

Do:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work; use hand sanitiser if soap and water unavailable
  • avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of coronavirus
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • only travel on public transport for essential work
  • work from home if you can
  • exercise once a day from home.

Do not:

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • do not have visitors to your home, including friends and family
  • do not see friends or family outside of your home.

It is important to #StayAtHome to #SaveLives and #ProtectTheNHS.
