COVID symptoms

The main COVID symptoms are:

· a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

· a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

· a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

In addition we have recently been advised by Public Health in the Norfolk Outbreak Management Team that children are also displaying other symptoms such as a sore throat, headache, sore eyes and sickness and diarrhoea and may not have any of the three main symptoms.
