Symptoms of COVID 19:

If you or a family member has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), please arrange a test as soon as possible and stay at home until you get the result.

The NHS highlights the main symptoms of coronavirus as:

  • 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
