Coronavirus (COVID-19): What you need to do?

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.


 

Do not leave your home if you have coronavirus symptoms


Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either:

  • 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) 


To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. 

Stay at home.
