What should I do if I develop symptoms of Covid-19?

Guidance on the steps to take if you develop symptoms of Covid-19.

If you develop symptoms of Covid-19 such as a new and continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss of taste or smell, you should stay at home and advice anyone you live with to do so too. You should book a Covid-19 test as soon as possible by calling 119.
