* A new, continuous cough means coughing for longer than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If the patient usually has a cough, it may be worse than usual.
If you have answered YES to any of the above, you should not attend the practice. Please inform either Sophie or Graham so that alternative arrangements can be made.
If you have recovered from COVID-19, or completed a period of self-isolation, you are able to attend the practice.
A person is considered to have recovered from COVID-19 infection when they meet all of the following criteria:
• It has been at least 7 days since the onset of the COVID-19 symptoms;
• They no longer have a high temperature.
N.B. A cough may persist for several weeks in some people, even though the coronavirus infection has cleared. The loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste may also linger. According to the CMO letter (18 May 2020) a person with a persistent cough and/or loss of sense of smell or taste but no other symptoms does not need to continue to self-isolate for more than 7 days.
