UPDATED INFORMATION FROM CHARLBURY MEDICAL CENTRE

The Practice asks you to note the following updated advice:

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days.

After 7 days:

• if you do not have a high temperature, you do not need to stay at home

• if you still have a high temperature, stay at home until your temperature returns to normal

You do not need to stay at home if you just have a cough after 7 days. A cough can last for several weeks after the infection has gone.

If you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day their symptoms started. This is because it can take 14 days for symptoms to appear.

If more than 1 person at home has symptoms, stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person started having symptoms.

If you get symptoms, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms start, even if it means you're at home for longer than 14 days.

If you do not get symptoms, you can stop staying at home after 14 days.

If you have symptoms and live with a vulnerable person, someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, providing they too are well, try to arrange for them to stay with unaffected friends or family for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
