North Yorkshire is following the government Covid roadmap. Some restrictions are still in place.

If you have the symptoms of coronavirus you must self-isolate and get a test

You must self-isolate and get a test if you have:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
  • loss/change in your normal sense of smell or taste

Find out about more about test and trace.


How to protect yourself

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • use phone, online services, or apps to contact your GP surgery or other NHS services
  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
