What to do if you think you have COVID19? 

If you develop symptoms for COVID19 you will need to self-isolate and phone a GP (General Practitioner). 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. The GP will assess you over the phone.

If they think you need to be tested for coronavirus, they will arrange a test.

You can find contact information for other GPs here: https://www.hse.ie/eng/services/maps/ and after hours GPs here: https://www.gp24.ie/service-locations
