If a person develops symptoms
If you become unwell with the following symptoms, although you are not required to self isolate, it is advisable to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 days
- a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature 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
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
- shortness of breath
- feeling tired or exhausted
- an aching body
- a headache
- a sore throat
- a blocked or runny nose
- loss of appetite
- feeling sick or being sick
The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu. You can go back to your normal activities when you feel better or do not have a high temperature.
If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive
Individuals are not required to self -isolate if they live in the same household of someone with COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive
Adults are strongly advised to take a LFT test every day if a member of the same household test positive for COVID-19 and are advised to isolate for at least 5 days if they test positive or develop symptoms.
