Health advice

Follow NHS advice if you have coronavirus symptoms as described on their website.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus. It's therefore important to follow the latest NHS advice and stay at home guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus infection on the gov.uk website. This will help stop the spread of coronavirus and help protect others in your community while you are infectious.
