If you have symptoms of COVID-19 however mild, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 – go to testing to arrange. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you are not experiencing symptoms but have tested positive for COVID-19 you also must self-isolate for at least 10 days, starting from the day the test was taken. If you develop symptoms during this isolation period, you must restart your 10-day isolation from the day you develop symptoms.
After 10 days, if you still have a temperature you should continue to self-isolate and seek medical advice over the telephone, DO NOT go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital.
If you live with others, all other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the household became ill or if they do not have symptoms, from the day their test was taken. If anyone else in the household starts displaying symptoms, they must stay at home for at least 10 days from when their symptoms appear, regardless of what day they are on in their original 14-day isolation period.

COVID Assessment Hub
The COVID Assessment Hub is open 24/7 and located at the Integrated Care Centre (ICC) - New Radcliffe Street, Oldham OL1 1NL. The Hub has been created for people who have possible symptoms of coronavirus and are unwell, but do not need a 999 response.
The Hub allows us to provide telephone, video and face-to-face consultations and arrange GP home visits when required and appropriate. This lowers the risk to patients and staff as they will be able to be seen by primary care in a safe and dedicated environment.
