Help the NHS

There are things you can do to help the NHS respond to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Only leave your home if it’s essential

One of the most important things you can do to help the NHS is to stay at home and only go out when it’s essential.

This will help you avoid getting the virus and stop it spreading to other people.

Tell the NHS about your current experience of coronavirus

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, use the quick NHS coronavirus status checker to tell us about your experience.

This will help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus by showing where the virus is spreading and how it affects people.
