Important information: The use of face coverings and gloves when coming to into hospital
Please remove your gloves - Good hand hygiene is one of the keys to defeating Coronavirus
If you are wearing gloves when attending our clinics you will be asked to remove them
We will ask that you wash your hands with soap or sanitiser
You may sanitise your hands and reapply your gloves before you leave
Stay at Home if you have Coronavirus Symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
- or a high temperature and / or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
How long to stay at home
- if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
- if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
