Self Isolating and Living in Shared Accommodation
LIVING IN SHARED ACCOMMODATION
Please check out the NHS link for the very latest advice.
If you live in shared accommodation (for example, university halls of residence):
- stay in your room with the door closed, only using communal kitchens, bathrooms and living areas when necessary
- avoid using a shared kitchen while others are using it
- take your meals back to your room to eat
- use a dishwasher (if available) to clean and dry your used crockery and cutlery; if this is not possible, wash them by hand using detergent and warm water and dry them thoroughly, using a separate tea towel
WHAT IF I DEVELOP SYMPTOMS?
If you get a cough, a fever or shortness of breath, call NHS 111 and tell them you have been asked to self-isolate because of coronavirus. Even if the symptoms seem mild, it is better to call for advice.
