The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Any person who develops a cough or high temperature (of 37.8 degrees or higher) should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days.
If symptoms are serious and you cannot manage at home please use the NHS 111 online service. Only telephone NHS 111 if you cannot get online.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
The latest information on symptoms of coronavirus infection can be found on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
