Please read the latest government guidance and support for businesses.

What to do if a member of staff or customer displays coronavirus symptoms

If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves.

They should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell with symptoms consistent with coronavirus infection.

If anyone becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, they should be sent home and advised to follow the stay at home guidance.

If you or an employee are experiencing symptoms, visit NHS 111 online or call 111 if there is no internet access.

In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured, or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
