The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.You can still spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

 

How to stop infection spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with coronavirus. Please also refer to the NHS and gov.uk website for up to date information and guidance.

 

Do

  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • wash your hands as soon as you get back home
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
