If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

Please only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.
Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.
Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.
You'll need to stay in isolation, away from other people, until you have recovered.
If you feel you can’t cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, use the 111 online service again.
