With the easing of lockdown it is very important that any new cases are picked up early so that the individual can self isolate and their contacts contacted by the NHS Track & Trace service.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
•a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
•a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
•a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms. Therefore if you develop any of these symptoms please arrange a test as soon as possible. Click here BOOK COVID TEST
