It has been announced by the UK/Scottish Government that as of 16 March anyone developing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, however mild, should stay at home for 7 days from the onset of symptoms as per existing advice. In addition, it is now recommended that anyone living in the same household as a symptomatic person should self-isolate for 14 days after the first household member first gets symptoms.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature
Information for the public on COVID-19, including stay at home advice for people who are self-isolating, can be found on NHS Inform.
Further, people are advised to take social distancing measures to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. In particular, this is strongly advised for people aged 70 or over, people with underlying medical conditions and pregnant women. Further advice on these measures will be available on NHS Inform shortly.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) helpline
If you do not have symptoms and are looking for general information, a free helpline has been set up on: 0800 028 2816.
The helpline is open:

Anyone who is symptomatic (cough, fever or breathless) should now self-isolate for a minimum of 7 days. Self-isolation can stop from day 8 after onset, if symptoms are improving, and they have had two days without fever. They can return to work and daily life if they still have a cough, if that is the sole symptom.
If symptoms worsen during home isolation or they are no better after 7 days then you should phone NHS 24 on (111).
From Monday 23 March from 0800 onwards, patients who are unwell and worried about COVID-19 are to consult NHS inform and phone NHS 24 111 as the first point of contact, NOT THEIR GP.
