Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are 1) high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) 2) new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual) 3) loss or change to your sense of smell or taste - this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

Please follow Mr Johnson's instructions and stay at home unless it is absolutely vital that you go out. This is really important. If you are a Key Worker, please try to arrange for your children to stay at home as well. Most parents have done this already.
