If you have symptoms

If you have a medical emergency, always phone 999 

A free helpline has been set up for people who do not have symptoms but are looking for general advice: 0800 028 2816.

  • Everyone within your household should stay at home for 14 days from when your symptoms start.
  • After 7 days, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature, you can return to your normal routine.
  • If other household members develop symptoms within the 14-day household isolation period, they need to stay at home for a further 7 days from the first day that their symptoms began. This should be done, even if it takes them over the 14-day isolation period.
  • If other household members become unwell during the 14-day household isolation period, they should follow the advice – that is, after 7 days of their symptoms starting, if they feel better and no longer have a high temperature, they can also return to their normal routine.
  • Should a household member develop coronavirus symptoms late in the 14-day household isolation period (for example on day 13 or 14), the household isolation period does not need to be extended, but the person with the new symptoms has to stay at home for 7 days.
  • At the end of the 14-day isolation period, any household member who has not become unwell can return to their normal routine.
