What to do if people develop symptoms
The most common symptoms are:
- A new, continuous cough
- A high temperature
Anyone with these symptoms should be sent home. Advise them to follow guidance about self-isolation, which says:
- If they live alone, they must self-isolate for 7 days from when they first experience symptoms
- If they live with others, then they must again self-isolate for 7 days but anyone they live with must self-isolate for 14 days
If they need clinical advice they should:
- Use the online NHS 111 service, or call 111 if they don't have internet access
- If they're seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk, call 999
