Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

What we have to say about your health and well being

Exercise is good for you - Apparently!
Well, your blogger writes to report that he has started exercising. This is a milestone as he had a serious heart problem about three years ago and to his shame, although full of good intention, he had not seriously addressed the issue. The good news about exercise is that it has many benefits and I won't bore you with them here. Suffice to say that if your blogger had not been a keen cyclist in his youth he may not have survived the heart scare. My point is this, whatever exercise you can manage is going to be doing some good and could improve your chances of a healthier old age. Many people have to be careful about exercise but if you start slowly and build up gradually you will surprise yourself. I have been using a cross trainer and aboutthree weeks ago I started using it for 2 minutes on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. By increasing the time by 1 minute each time I was able to increase to 11 minutes. I am now adding 2 minutes each time and have reached the dizzying time of 16 minutes. Because it is not every day,I am on the lowest setting and I only increase the time by small amounts I feel like I am making progress and the increases are acheivable. Bizarrely,I am finding thatI still havesome reserves even though I am going longer and longer. So I can only conclude I must be getting a little fitter. Follow my progress and be encouraged that it is possible to exerciseeven if you haven't for a very long time, like me.
