  • 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
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them 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 from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

Healthy lifestyles - Physical activities campaign

To stay healthy, adults should try to be active every day and aim to achieve at least 150 minutes of physical activity over a week through a variety of activities.

Public Health England launched the Active 10 campaign under the One You brand, which aims to encourage adults across England to participate in more physical activities which can be as simple as going for a brisk 10 minute walk every day.

A brisk 10 minute walk everyday has many health benefits such as improving your mood, energy and quality of life, increasing physical fitness and in some way may help towards lowering your risk of serious illness, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

If you are interested in taking part in the Active 10 campaign activity, there is a free ‘Active 10’ app available to download. This app will show you how much brisk walking you are doing on a daily basis. It also provides tips and encouragements if you struggling to find the time to exercise.
