Symptoms you should be watching out for are:

  • Temperature over 37.5 C

Your options will most likely include:

  • Stay at home until you are feeling better if it is deemed there is no risk of COVID

  • Get tested for COVID (your doctor will explain how to go about this)

  • See a doctor or respiratory clinic if you sound unwell

  • Attend hospital emergency department if you sound very unwell.
