Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance March 17th

The latest guidance from the government states:


If you, or someone in your household 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 when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period.
