If you, or anyone in your household develops a fever and/or a new, continuous cough then you should immediately self-isolate for 14 days. If needed, you should ask for help from others to purchase your daily necessities. If this is not possible, you should do all you can to minimise social contact when you leave your home to get vital supplies
Regardless of whether you have symptoms or are in a household with somebody who does, you should avoid all unnecessary social contact with others and all unnecessary travel. If you can work from home, you should do so. Social venues such as pubs, clubs, restaurants, theatres and cinemas will now be closing.
You should continue to follow prior advice regarding frequent and thorough handwashing, particularly before eating
