Symptoms and prevention

Symptoms

The NHS website contains information about the symptoms of coronavirus and what to do if you are unwell. The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

There are other wider symptoms of coronavirus outlined by the World Health Organisation including a persistent headache and diarrhoea, so you should get a test if you feel in any way unwell.

  • If you feel unwell, get a test as soon as possible. Visit NHS.uk to find out how to get a test
  • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test
  • Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result

Prevention

There are simple things we can all do:

  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly
  • Keep your distance from others - 2 metres is best
  • Wear a face covering where required
  • Stay home and get tested if you have any symptoms
  • Follow the latest guidance
