Stay safe

To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

Visit the .gov website for national advice from the Government or the NHS website for health advice.

If you need medical help or advice

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you have any of these symptoms:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

You can book a test online or by calling 119.

You need to get the test done in the first 5 days of having symptoms.

If you're getting a test because you have coronavirus symptoms, you and anyone you live with must stay at home until you get your result.

If reading English is hard for you, call 111. The 111 phone service can get an interpreter to help you.

Your future matters
