Stay at home for 7 days and self-isolate if you feel hot to touch on your chest or back or if you have a new continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than one hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours). Those you live with also need to self-isolate for 14 days. This will help protect others in our community.
