We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19.


1. From today the public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:


a. A new continuous cough

OR

b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)


2. The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.



Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS 111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online).



After 7 days of self-isolation, people who feel better and no longer have a high temperature can return to their normal routine. If they have not had any signs of improvement after 7 days and have not already sought medical advice, they should use NHS111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online) before they leave their home or let visitors in.



Cough may persist for several weeks in some people, despite the coronavirus infection having cleared. A persistent cough alone does not mean someone must continue to stay at home for more than 7 days.








 LATEST CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) ADVICE

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:



You feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home


Your condition gets worse

New measures that comes into affect:


1. If anyone living on their own and has a fever or persistent cough should self isolate for 7 days.


2. If  you live with others, then ALL household will need to isolate for 14 days.


3. If one person has fever or persistent cough, then the whole household will need to isolate for 14 days.


4. Everyone should stop non-essential contact with others. This is particularly important for people over 70, those with underlying health conditions and pregnant women.
