Government have announced we are moving into the delay phase of #COVID19. This means, if you have a new cough OR a high temperature (37.8 degrees or higher), but generally feel well, you do not need to contact anybody. You do need to self isolate for 7 days.

We expect the NHS to be exceptionally busy in the coming days and weeks. If you have serious symptoms that you cannot manage at home or persist longer than 7 days, please go to NHS 111 online, or call 111 if you cannot go online.
