Government Advice

The Government has issued the following instructions:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

If you have symptoms

  • Stay at home if you have a high temperature (37.8 or above) or 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

How long to stay at home

  • If you have symptoms, you should self-isolate and not leave your house for 7 days or until your symptoms are gone
  • If you live with other people, they 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, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible. Use the NHS 111 online service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days.
