Self Isolating and Living in Shared Accommodation
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.
