Do you have COVID-19 symptoms?
You should stay at home and self-isolate immediately if you have COVID-19 symptoms: a new continuous cough, high temperature, or loss of smell or taste, or if you have a positive test result. Do not go to any healthcare setting.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should arrange to have a PCR test as soon as possible. You can order a PCR test online, or call 119 for advice.
This still applies even if you have received one or more doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
