You may have coronavirus if you have either of the following symptoms, however mild:

• a high temperature.
• a new, continuous cough.

Anyone who has these symptoms must stay at home until the symptoms have ended, and in all cases for at least seven days. Everyone else in the household must stay at home for at least 14 days after the first person’s symptoms appear, even if they themselves do not have symptoms.

If anyone else develops symptoms during that time, that individual must stay home for an additional seven days from when they developed symptoms. Once seven days have passed and provided symptoms have ended, they no longer need to isolate.
