What to do if you think you have COVID19

If you develop symptoms for COVID19 you will need to self-isolate and phone a GP (General Practitioner). It is safe to call a GP or any health service about COVID19 even if you are undocumented. Your immigration status does not matter. Health comes first. 

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. The GP will assess you over the phone.

If they think you need to be tested for coronavirus, they will arrange a test.
