Latest Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu and it does not necessarily mean you have the illness.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home for 7 days.
