The latest guidance relating to symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been updated and you can read the full guidance on the Government website but it is still important to follow the basic steps which  include:

All individuals should self-isolate if they develop a new continuous cough or fever or anosmia. Anosmia is the loss of or a change in your normal sense of smell. It can also affect your sense of taste as the two are closely linked.

Individual’s households should also self-isolate for 14 days as per the current guidelines and the individual should stay at home for 7 days, or longer if they still have symptoms other than cough or loss of sense of smell.
