​Health advice

You must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly


Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

After 7 days:

  • if you do not have a high temperature, you can stop self-isolating
  • if you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal
  • you do not need to keep self-isolating if you just have a cough after 7 days. A cough can last for weeks after the infection has gone.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

See more information about when to call 111 and advice about staying at home:
