What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that can trigger what doctors call a respiratory tract infection. SARS-CoV-2 is one of seven types of coronavirus and infections range from mild to severe. The other coronaviruses cause most of the colds that affect us during the year but are not a serious threat for otherwise healthy people.

What are the common symptoms?
– A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
– A 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)
– A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you have noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
Testing for the virus
If you have any of these symptoms get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible. You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since your symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started.

How can I protect myself, others and help to stop the spread?
– Stay at home – only go out if it is essential.
– Only meet other people for a permitted reason
– Wear a face covering in enclosed spaces unless you have a valid reason not to. This includes shops, public transport and when using health services.
– Let fresh air into your home by opening windows, doors, and air vents as much as possible.
– Work from home if you can.
– Wash your hands with soap and water often and as soon as you get home – do this for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available.
– Keep your distance from people not in your household – try to stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from anyone you do not live with (or anyone not in your support bubble).
– Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser gel if not available.
– Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards.
– Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
Remember – you can spread the virus even if you have no symptoms.
