Find out how to help in the fight against coronavirus, including following the latest advice, volunteering and sharing official information with people you know.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has had symptoms, please get tested as soon as you can.
When you go for your test, wear a face covering and bring a photo ID as well as your booking number.
If you test positive for coronavirus, you must stay at home for at least 7 days and until you feel better. People in your household should stay at home for 14 days.
Help us to save lives by reinforcing the key messages of the coronavirus campaign with your key contacts. In particular, this should include the essential message that everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. This includes people of all ages – even if they do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.
Please use your social media accounts to share only official messages from Government and NHS websites and accounts. There is a lot of misinformation about coronavirus being shared online, which is causing confusion about the virus and how it spreads.
It’s more important than ever that people look after their mental health and well-being., particularly if they are worried about the coronavirus and the effects of self-isolation or social distancing. Visit our wellbeing page for more information.
If you, or someone you know, needs support, you can contact the ONE Prepared scheme for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. You can also volunteer to help out with this service. We are also encouraging our GPs and other health care professionals to make full use of the scheme.
