What is Coronavirus? 

Coronavirus (Covid-19) is a viral disease that can cause respiratory symptoms ranging from very mild to very severe. Symptoms can include cough, fever and difficulty breathing. Coronavirus can affect anyone, but people with underlying health conditions or who are older are thought to be at greater risk of developing severe symptoms.

What should I do if I feel unwell?

Stay at home and for at least 7 days if you have a new, continuous cough or high temperature, even if you're feeling OK. 

Stay at home for at least 14 days if you live with other people and you or they develop a new, continuous cough or high temperature. Everyone in the household needs to stay at home for at least 14 days.

You don’t need to tell the NHS you’re staying at home, and you won’t be tested for coronavirus. You only need to get in touch with the NHS if:

  • you don’t feel better after 7 days
  • your symptoms are getting worse
  • you feel you can’t cope with your symptoms at home.

You should do this by calling 111 or using the NHS online coronavirus service. Do not go to your doctor’s surgery or to hospital.

If you're feeling unwell, it's important to keep practising good hygeine, like washing your hands regularly.
