What to do if you think you have COVID-19

  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19, however mild, you should still book to receive a PCR test. Find your closest test centre.
  • You should regularly test for COVID-19 using lateral flow devices, even if you don’t have symptoms. One in three people with COVID don’t have symptoms and could be spreading the virus without knowing it. Find out how to get the tests. 
  • If you have not been fully vaccinated, or if you have tested positive, you should still isolate if you’re contacted by NHS Test and Trace. This remains the law. Find out more.
  • If you’re returning from abroad, you should ensure you understand the rules around testing and quarantining before travel. You should also ensure that you keep up-to-date with changes to those rules, even while you are away. Find out more.
  • You should be cautious in crowded areas or when mixing indoors. Face coverings, open windows and mixing with fewer people is recommended to reduce the risk.
  • Regular handwashing or using hand sanitiser makes it harder for the virus to spread. 
  • A gradual return to working in the office is now encouraged - but with safety in mind. Find out more.
  • If you are not yet vaccinated, the best thing you can do is to get your jabs, as soon as you can. Find out more.
