Since the 23 March the Government has said :
everyone should stay indoors and away from others for at least 3 weeks. This is because anyone can pass the coronavirus on.
The main symptoms are:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough.
You can read more about the symptoms here.
If you have coronavirus or think that you may have it you MUST self-isolate for 7 days.
This means you:
- must not leave where you are staying for any reason, other than to exercise once a day – but stay at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from other people
- should try and avoid going out to buy food or collect medicine – order them by phone or online, or ask someone else to get them and drop them off for you
- must not have visitors, such as friends and family, to the place you are staying
- can use your garden, if you have one, but stay at least 2 metres away from other people in the garden or next door.
How do I stick to the rules if I am sleeping rough or staying in emergency accommodation?
- If you have a support worker, get in touch with them straight away, even if you do not have any symptoms. If you have no support worker, contact your local council’s homelessness department. Find contact details for your local council here
- you should be given some support in finding suitable accommodation, access to food and suitable hygiene facilities
- if you need to self-isolate they may be able to help you access suitable accommodation
- the accommodation could be a single room that has en-suite facilities. This might be at a B&B, or a hotel. You should be supported, have access to food and medical help if needed
- if you are in a hostel you may be given a separate isolation pod away from others and separate hygiene facilities.
