Phone: 0800 046 8687

Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

a high temperature

a new continuous cough

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.

If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
