Stay at Home Guidance
The information below is taken from NHS and Government websites as of 13th March 2020. An explanation is given as to how the advice will be applied to our organisation.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are a recent onset of:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild infection.
If you have symptoms
- You should remain at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
- After 7 days, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature, you can return to your normal routine. A cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean you must continue to self-isolate for more than 7 days.
- If you have not had any signs of improvement and have not already sought medical advice, you should contact NHS 111 online at 111.nhs.uk. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111.
In contact with confirmed coronavirus case, but no symptoms
- You should remain at home for 14 days.
