I think I might have symptoms of Coronavirus, what do I do?

If your symptoms are mild the most important thing is to stay at home and self-isolate. Usual self-care with fluids, rest and paracetamol (avoiding ibuprofen) is sensible. If you feel you are getting worse, phone 111 (there may be a long wait on the phone but it is important to hang on. You can use their online tool first – 111.nhs.uk/covid-19

If you feel you are deteriorating and may need urgent care phone 999.

Please do not come down to the surgery or go to a pharmacist.

You may want to consider participating in the PRINCIPLE trial, investigating treatments proposed by the NHS to improve outcomes during COVID19 illness.
