The advice to the public is that if you develop a new, continuous cough and/or have a high temperature STAY INDOORS and SELF ISOLATE for 7 days.
You can check the NHS website for up-to-date health advice clicking here
The main advice remains - DO NOT ATTEND YOUR SURGERY - nor A&E - but go online to the NHS111 Online website first and only telephone 111 if you have no internet
They will guide you and arrange any relevant medical care
Please be aware - your GP will not be able to override NHS111 advice - nor be able to have access to the latest information because this changes rapidly.
REMEMBER : WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN AND FOR AT LEAST 20 SECONDS
Preventing spread of infection
There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
If you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment
If you are worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111
Do not go directly to your GP or another healthcare environment
