    Exclamation Health Advice for those returning to the UK from Thailand

    If you have returned to the UK from Thailand in the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:

    stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
    call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country
    In Scotland phone your GP or NHS 24 on 111 out of hours. If you are in Northern Ireland, call 0300 200 7885.

    Please follow this advice even if your symptoms are minor.

    What this means in practice
    We are asking people to take simple, common-sense steps to avoid close contact with other people as much as possible, like they would with other flu viruses.

    This means remaining at home for 14 days after arriving from Thailand if you have symptoms) and not going to work, school or public areas.

    Where possible, you should avoid having visitors to your home, but it’s ok for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food.

    Transport
    You should not use public transport or taxis until 14 days after your return from Thailand if you have symptoms).

    Getting food and medicine
    We recommend that you stay at home for 14 days after arriving from Thailand if you have symptoms), and avoid public places. Where possible, contact a friend, family member or delivery services to carry out errands on your behalf.

    Taking children to school
    We recommend that you stay at home for 14 days after arriving from Thailand if you have symptoms), and avoid public places. Where possible, contact a friend or family member to take your children to school.

    Why the advice has changed
    This is an evolving situation and the advice has changed based on emerging information from China about the number of cases and spread of the infection from person to person.

    This is a highly precautionary measure to limit the potential spread of infection.

    If these people have been wearing masks
    While they were in Asia, then they should be fine.

    Not necessarily so. See this useful guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

    Most of the masks on sale are as much use as a chocolate teapot.

    Mol returns next week after spending three weeks in her home town. Whilst there she got a nasty case of flu
    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.
