What to do if you have Coronavirus symptoms.

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible.  Stay at home until you get the result.

Main symptoms

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.

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

      • Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
      • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
      • Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.
      • Please let Cardiac Rehab know if the test is positive
