If you or someone you know needs help with day-to-day living because of illness or disability, this website explains your options and where you can get support.
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.
The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
You must stay at home (self-isolate) and get a test if you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). Anyone you live with must also self-isolate.
You can usually treat mild coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms at home. If your symptoms are severe, you may need medical care until you recover.
While you’re staying at home with coronavirus (COVID-19), you can ease mild symptoms by resting, drinking plenty of fluids and taking painkillers.
To get a test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19), go to www.nhs.uk/coronavirus. Call 119 to get a test if you do not have internet access.
To help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), avoid close contact with anyone you do not live with and wash your hands regularly.
