Find out what to do if you think you have symptoms
The 111 online assessment is being updated with new information from the Chief Medical Officer.
It will ask you a few questions and tell you what to do next.
COVID-19 is caused by coronavirus. It’s a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways.
The NHS says you should 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
- Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
- You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
- Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
