What If I display Symptoms of Covid-19
Self-isolation if you or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms:
To protect others, you must stay at home if you or someone you live with has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
This is called self-isolation.
Can I leave my home if I'm self-isolating?
If you or someone you live with has symptoms of coronavirus:
do not leave your home for any reason – if you need food or medicine, order it online or by phone, or ask someone to deliver it to your home
do not have visitors in your home – including friends and family
do any exercise at home – you can use your garden, if you have one
How long to self-isolate
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, self-isolate for 7 days.
After 7 days:
if you do not have a high temperature, you can stop self-isolating
if you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal
You do not need to keep self-isolating if you just have a cough after 7 days. A cough can last for weeks after the infection has gone.
If you live with someone who has symptoms
If you live with someone who has symptoms, self-isolate for 14 days from the day their symptoms started.
This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.
If more than 1 person at home has symptoms, self-isolate for 14 days from the day the first person started having symptoms.
If you get symptoms while self-isolating – you should self-isolate for 7 days from when your symptoms started, even if it means you're self-isolating for longer than 14 days.
If you do not get symptoms while self-isolating – you can stop self-isolating after 14 days.
You still need to stay at home when you stop self-isolating.
But you can go out to exercise once a day and for essential trips, such as to buy food.
