Self-isolating means staying at home and not leaving it, other than for exercise. Don’t go to work, school or public areas during this time.

If possible, you should not go out even to buy food or other essentials. If you are unable to get supplies delivered, you should do what you can to limit social contact when you do leave the house.

Who should self-isolate?

Everyone who shows coronavirus symptoms – a fever of above 37.8C, a persistent cough or breathing problem – and everyone who lives in the same house or flat as someone with symptoms.

  • If you live alone, you must stay at home for seven days from the day symptoms start
  • If you or someone you live with has symptoms, then the entire household needs to isolate for 14 days from the day they start
  • Anyone in the household who starts displaying new symptoms during the 14-day period will need to stay at home for seven more days, regardless of how long they have already been isolated

The person with the symptoms should stay in a well-ventilated room with a window that can be opened, and keep away from other people in the home.

People are being advised not to ring NHS 111 or their GP to report their symptoms unless they are worried.

Who else should self-isolate?

People with very serious health conditions need to be shielded from the virus for about 12 weeks, using special isolation and precaution measures to be announced soon. This group includes:

  • Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • Transplant patients
  • People with severe diseases or on dialysis
  • People with cystic fibrosis or severe asthma
