Coronavirus symptoms

Symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath 
  • High temperature (37.8 degrees celsius and above) 
  • A new persistent cough
     

Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either a high temperature or a new, continuous cough
 

If you have symptoms, or have tested positive for coronavirus, you'll usually need to self-isolate for at least 10 days and usually for 14 days if:

  • someone you live with has symptoms or tested positive
  • someone in your support bubble has symptoms or tested positive
  • you've been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace
