LIVING IN SHARED ACCOMMODATION

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.
