If you have travelled from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau to the UK in the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:
- Stay at home for 14 days and do not go to your place of work, study or public areas.
- Telephone the National Health Service (NHS) on 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country.
- Avoid having visitors to your home, where possible. It’s ok for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food.
- Avoid using public transport or taxis.
You will also need to let LSE know:
Please follow this advice even if your symptoms are mild. While the risk to the UK population remains low, this is a highly precautionary measure to limit the potential spread of infection.
These areas have been identified by UK Chief Medical Officers (on the scientific advice of SAGE) because of the volume of air travel from affected areas, understanding of other travel routes and number of reported cases. Public Health England will continue to review this list, updating where necessary.
