If you have been overseas within the last 14 days and develop a fever, cough or shortness of breath, phone Healthline’s dedicated COVID-19 number 0800 358 5453 or contact your GP, including phoning ahead of your visit.
As much as possible, you should stay in a room by yourself. It should be well-ventilated (eg, open windows), but you should keep the door closed. Keep your distance from other people in your home. This means eating meals in your room by yourself, limiting your movements in shared spaces and using a separate bathroom if possible. If you can, try to have one person who is in good health looking after you. You should not have any visitors.
You should only leave your home or accommodation to get urgent medical care. Do not go to work, school or public areas. Do not use public transportation, ride-sharing services or taxis. You will need to put off or cancel any non-urgent appointments (eg, going to the dentist, hairdresser, eye appointments etc.) until you are advised that you no longer need to stay in isolation.
If you have an urgent medical appointment, call the health care provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help their office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
