What you will need to do

If you are well and have not been in contact with coronavirus, you will be told to watch out for symptoms over the next 14 days. You can continue with your daily life and go to work as usual.

If you have had close contact with a person who has coronavirus, you will be monitored for 14 days. A doctor will phone you daily to make sure you remain well. You will be asked to stay separate from other people as much as you can for 14 days. This includes not going to work.

Feel unwell and been in an affected area in the past 14 days

If you’ve been to an affected area in the last 14 days and have a cough, fever (high temperature), feel short of breath or have difficulty breathing

Do:

  • phone your GP, emergency department (ED) or student healthcare centre immediately
  • stay indoors
  • avoid contact with other people
  • follow this advice even if your symptoms are mild

Don’t:

  • do not go to your GP’s surgery, ED or healthcare centre – phone them first. This is so you do not accidentally put other people at risk. Your GP or doctor will tell you over the phone what to do next.
