What to do if you think you may have Coronavirus
Do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. It is highly contagious and, if you do have it, you could spread it to other people.
If you believe you may have contracted Coronavirus, have recently travelled to a country with high rates of Coronavirus (a list is available here) or have come into contact with someone who has Coronavirus, use the Coronavirus online service provided by NHS 111, or call 111 for advice.
