How to look after your symptoms at home
- Rest and drink plenty of fluids.
- Take acetaminophen if you have a fever.
- Cover the mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
- Put used tissues in a trash bin.
- Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
- If you feel you can’t cope with your symptoms at home or your condition gets worse please re-take the assessment to determine if you need to be assessed by a healthcare professional.
When to end your stay at home
You should remain at home until 14 days after your symptoms started. After 14 days, if you feel better and no longer have a high temperature, you can go back to doing what you would normally do. The cough may go on for some weeks in some people, even though the coronavirus infection has cleared. A cough by itself does not mean you have to stay at home for more than 14 days. If you do not get better after 14 days take the assessment again before you leave your home or let visitors in.
