Coronavirus stay at home advice | NHS

The NHS website has advice on how long to stay at
home and what to do if you live with a vulnerable person. If you have these symptoms stay
at home for seven days: A high temperature, you feel hot to touch on
your chest or back. Or a new continuous cough. This means you’ve started coughing repeatedly. If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. This is because it can take up to
14 days for symptoms to appear and help avoid spreading
the infection outside the home. If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long term condition, is pregnant, or has a weakened immune system, such as people having chemotherapy, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together try to
keep away from each other as much as possible. If you still have symptoms after seven days: After seven days, if you no longer have a high temperature you can return to your normal routine. If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. If you still have a high temperature stay at home until your temperature returns to
normal. If you still have a cough after seven days, but your temperature is normal,
you do not need to continue staying at home. A cough can last for several
weeks after the infection has gone. Visit the NHS website for
up-to-date information. Thank you
