Covid 19 At Risk Patients
If you have coronavirus symptoms
- a high temperature of 37.8 or above
- a new continuous cough
- Rest and drink plenty of fluids and make sure someone checks on you regularly. Avoid unnecessary contact.
- Cover your mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Put used tissues into a bin immediately and wash your hands.
- Unless advised not to take, paracetamol can be used to relieve pain or fever. Follow the instructions in the pack. If in doubt CALL your local pharmacy.
- You should remain at home until 7 days after your symptoms started. After 7 days, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature, you can go back to doing what you would normally do following latest national guidance e.g. Social distancing. The cough may go on for some weeks in some people, even though the coronavirus infection has cleared. A cough by itself does not mean you have to stay at home for more than 7 days.
