What are the symptoms of Covid-19 and what precautionary measures can stop the spread of the virus?
The majority of cases report mild illness and symptoms include fever (high temperature), cough, chest tightness or shortness of breath.
Advice from the NHS and Public Health England states that following hygiene precautions such as thoroughly washing hands with soap and water, covering your mouth and nose with a tissue if you cough or sneeze and promptly disposing of the tissues into a bin, and keeping surfaces clean, are the best ways to avoid catching or spreading the virus.
What should I do if I suspect I may have Covid-19?
If you have returned from an affected area, or come into contact with someone who has the virus, you should immediately stay indoors and seek medical advice by calling your GP or the free NHS 111 telephone helpline with details of your travel history. You can also find specific advice on the NHS website if you are unable to get through. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You should follow this advice even if your symptoms are minor.
The Public Health England website shows the latest list of specified countries and areas affected by Covid-19. The situation is changing rapidly so please check their advice if you have any concerns about your recent travel.
The NHS has comprehensive advice on their website about what to do if you think you may have the virus, precautionary measures, and self-isolation procedures.
We ask that you keep us updated on your health by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
When will London Jewellery Workshop reopen?
We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. We will continue to update students via this information page and our Newsletter.
We hope to provide video link tuition and short online workshops soon.
Take care of yourselves.
