I think I have Coronavirus:

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or high temperature. If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started (if you live alone), or 14 days (if you live with someone who has symptoms). You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.

Handwashing and respiratory hygiene

There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

-washing your hands more often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitiser when you get home or into work, when you blow your nose, sneeze or cough, eat or handle food

-avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

-avoid close contact with people who have symptoms

-cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands

-clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home

Advice for Parents during Coronavirus:

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is

likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during

this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured.

Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that

they have always done. Here is some advice to help: Advice for Parents
