NHS Devon CCG have advised:  "Please do not come to the surgery if you have any symptoms of coronavirus. These include a high temperature or a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.  If you have these symptoms, please book a free test by visiting the government website or calling 119 and self-isolate with members of your household until you get the results.  If you test positive you must self-isolate for 10 days from when your symptoms started and those you live with must self-isolate for 14 days, but they don’t need to get tested unless they develop symptoms too."

​“If other members of your household develop symptoms too, they should get tested and if the result is positive they must self-isolate for 10 days from when their symptoms started, which might mean they self-isolate for longer than 14 days overall."
