Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all 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 house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

Mental health - where to turn for help
Last week's deeply saddening news of Robin Williams' death is a timely reminder that mental health problems do not discriminate and show no regard for fame or fortune. Robin Williams had a well-documented history of battling depression and addiction problems and had recently been diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson's disease. This will undoubtedly be an incredibly difficult period for Robin's family and close friends and our thoughts are with them. It's impossible to ever truly understand what would drive someone to take their own life, one can only assume that Robin Williams must have been dealing with some truly overwhelming feelings to consider suicide the best option available. Gradually the stigma and taboos around mental health are lifting, but asking for help and getting support are still defficult things, even in 2014, and it can be difficult to know where to turn. That's something that must change. 1 in 4 of us will be affected by mental health problems throughout the course of any given year and we must move towards a more open, accepting culture where mental health issues are given the same exposure and understanding as those such as heart disease and asthma If you have suicidal feelings, or know someone who does, don't hesitate in ensuring they are discussed with someone, preferably a GP. Mind, the mental health charity has an excellent website (www.mind.org.uk) and lots of support available - including an infoline (0300 123 3393)and options for those in need of urgent help. The Samaritans (www.samaritans.org) also has an infoline for those in urgent need - 08457 90 90 90. To find out more about Depression, read our guide here.
