Anyone displaying symptoms such as a new continuous cough and/or high temperature must self-isolate for 14 days.

If you live with someone who is displaying symptoms such as a new continuous cough and/or high temperature, everyone in the household must self-isolate for 14 days.  If anyone else in the household develops symptoms during that time, ALL household members must self-isolate for a further 14 days from the day the symptoms started.  To clarify, the clock starts again for everyone in the household.

What does self-isolation mean:-

  • Stay at home
  • DO NOT go to work or school
  • DO NOT go to public areas, or attend public gatherings
  • DO NOT use public transport or taxis
  • DO NOT go to the shop(s) to buy food or other essentials
  • DO NOT invite guests to your home
  • YOU CAN go outside into your garden

Please DO NOT attend the surgery or hospital.  Please call NHS 111 for further advice.
