It is important to stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
A high temperature
A new continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Read the NHS advice about staying at home and how to care for yourself.
Use the ONLINE NHS 111 Coronavirus service if:

Only call NHS 111 if you cannot get help online.
