Stay at home if;

  • you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
  • you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, 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.

Getting a Test


You can only get a free NHS test if at least one of the following applies:


  • you have a high temperature
  • you have a new, continuous cough
  • you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed
  • you’ve been asked to by a local council
  • you’re taking part in a government pilot project


You can also get a test for someone you live with if they have symptoms.
