Coronavirus: latest information and advice

For the latest national coronavirus advice, including information on symptoms, when people should stay at home and how to arrange testing, please go to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.

 

Do NOT leave your home if you think you have coronavirus

You do not need to contact your GP if you think you have coronavirus. 

  • You can use the online 111 coronavirus service to get advice and find out what to do. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online, or need further advice. This will free up help for those who most need it.

Testing

  • Anyone with coronavirus symptoms (a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) can now ask for a test. Here are details on how to do this.

Babies and children

  • Call 111 for advice if you’re worried about a baby or child. If they seem very unwell, are getting worse or you think there’s something seriously wrong, call 999. Do not delay getting help. This useful guide can help you decide which services to use and when if your child should become ill or injured.

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

And remember:

  • Please always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
