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.
It can take up to 14 days for symptoms of coronavirus to appear.
Look out for one, some or all of the main symptoms:
· a cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry
· shortness of breath
· breathing difficulties
Other symptoms are fatigue, headaches, sore throat, aches and pains.
