Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

The Prime Minister made an address to the nation about tough new restrictions for the country, to be in place for at least three weeks from the evening of 23 March 2020. Anyone can spread the virus, so people are asked to:

  • Stay at home
  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

 

If you think you have Coronavirus, visit NHS111 online to find out what to do.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online. Stay At Home advice can be found here
