Advice to those who have travelled recently

 

Public Health England has changed the advice for individuals who have travelled recently as follows:

 

Travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province

 

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days you should immediately:

 

 

  • stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the area

 

 

Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.

 

Travellers from other parts of China and other specified areas

 

This advice applies to travellers who have returned to the UK from the following areas:

 

 

  • Elsewhere in China
  • Thailand
  • Japan
  • Republic of Korea
  • Hong Kong
  • Taiwan
  • Singapore
  • Malaysia
  • Macau

 

 

If you have returned to the UK from any of these areas in the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:

 

 

  • stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country

 

 

Encouraging good hygiene

 

As always, if you have symptoms of a cold or flu, then there are measures you can take to stop germs:

 

 

  • always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
