What to do if you have COVID-19 

Most people with COVID-19 get better within a few weeks. You may be able to look after yourself at home while you recover.  

If you have a high temperature, it can help to get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids, and take over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol if you’re feeling uncomfortable. To treat a cough you should avoid lying on your back when you’re resting, or try having a teaspoon of honey. 

If your symptoms get worse or you feel unable to care for yourself, visit NHS 111 online via or call 111 for advice.
