COVID-19 Information

Symptoms of COVID-19

 

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

 

  • A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

 

If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild:

 

  • Get a PCR test as soon as possible to check if you have COVID-19
  • Try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until you get your test result.

 

When you should stay at home if you have COVID-19

 

From Thursday 24 February 2022, you are no longer required by law to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19, however, guidance still recommends that you stay at home and avoid contact with other people to help reduce the chance of passing COVID-19 on to others.

 

 

Close contact with someone who has COVID-19

 

From 24 February 2022, you will no longer have to take daily tests or be legally required to self-isolate following contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

 

 

Reducing the risk of COVID-19 spreading

 

Whilst the remaining domestic restrictions for England have been removed, the government have issued guidelines on steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:

 

  • Get vaccinated
  • Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
  • Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • If positive with COVID-19, stay at home.

 

 

COVID-19 vaccinations

Booking your COVID-19 vaccination

 

You can now book your vaccination appointment online for:

 

  • 1st and 2nd doses for people aged 12 years old and over
  • Boosters for people ages 16 years old and over
  • 3rd doses and boosters (4th doses) for people with a severely weakened immune system aged 16 years old and over.

 

Go to the NHS website for more information and to book your appointment.

 

 

If you’ve had a positive COVID-19 test

 

If you’ve had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait before getting any doses of the vaccine. You need to:

 

  • Wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you’re aged 18 years old or over
  • Wait 12 weeks (84 days) if you’re aged 12 years old or over
  • Wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you’re 12 to 17 years old and at high risk from COVID-19.

 

This starts from the date you had symptoms, or the date of the positive test if you did not have any symptoms.

 

 

Your COVID-19 Vaccination status

 

An NHS COVID Pass shows your COVID-19 vaccination details or test results. You may be asked to show your NHS COVID Pass to travel abroad or at events and venues asking for proof of COVID-19 status.

 

You can get your NHS COVID Pass digitally through the NHS App or the online NHS COVID Pass service by visiting the NHS website.
