We're working closely with our NHS colleagues, and other local authorities to ensure that the people of Nottinghamshire are kept well informed of the latest information and developments regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19).
If you have these symptoms, you should stay at home for 7 days:
Please do not go to your GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you are staying at home and will not be tested for COVID-19.
The government has issued specific stay at home advice and guidance for households with possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
People who have symptoms of coronavirus must stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared. All other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days from the day the first person became ill. For people who remain well, there is no need to restart the clock for the isolation period, even if someone else in the household becomes ill during the 14 days - as shown in this diagram.
Government guidance is now available for parents about the closure of educational settings, including information about who is classed as a critical worker. Schools and educational providers will be contacting parents about local arrangements.
Please note that you should only use the NHS 111 online service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not improve after 7 days. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has some great advice to help prevent accidents in the home, for different age groups and locations, like keeping gardens safe for children.
Many of us are staying at home due to coronavirus, but more accidents happen in the home than anywhere else. By preventing accidents and protecting your family, you can also help the NHS.
