The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature
If symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days then people should be advised to phone their GP or NHS24 (111). Public Health England (PHE) have produced advice for people who have symptoms and are self-isolating which can be viewed on their website.
Important note: HPS is updating its guidance in line with this change.
