How to Protect Yourself and Others
Correct as of 13/03/2020
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home. The Government will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.
Read the NHS advice about staying at home
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
