Covid-19 (Coronavirus) health information

This is a general overview of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and where you can find information about it.

Visit the NHS website for full information about Covid-19, including answers to common questions.

According to the NHS, the symptoms of Covid-19 are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common at this time of year, such as cold and flu.

Please look at this BBC News page which clearly explains steps we should all be taking to prevent the spread of the virus: Coronavirus symptoms: What are they and how to protect yourself?

If you are concerned you have been in close contact with someone with Covid-19 use the NHS 111 online Covid-19 service. Do not go to a GP surgery or hospital.
