Symptoms of Covid-19
Look out for the following symptoms:
- Temperature: you don’t even need a thermometer to test this. Just check whether your chest or back feels hot to the touch.
- A new, continuous cough: are you coughing regularly for longer than an hour? Do you have more than three coughing fits within the space of 24 hours?
- Differences in taste and smell: are you unable to taste or smell things? Or do they taste or smell very different from how they normally do?
If you have any of these symptoms,
get tested as soon as possible.
You and everyone else in your household should avoid going out and making contact with others, except to take the test.
