a 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
To protect others, please do not bring your children to nursery or go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have any of these symptoms. Stay at home.
You can use over-the-counter medications, such as paracetamol, to help with some of your symptoms. Use these according to the instructions on the packet or label and do not exceed the recommended dose.
If you or your family need to seek medical advice, seek prompt medical attention if your illness or the illness in any household members is worsening.
