 Updated Guidance 

Symptoms:

  • A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)
  • A new, continuous cough

If you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period

If staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home.
