If you have returned from Wuhan in the last 14 days, the latest government advice is to:
- stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with other flu viruses
- call the NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the city
Anyone who has visited Wuhan has been asked to follow this advice for the 14 days immediately after return to the UK, even if they have no symptoms of the virus.
If you do develop flu-like symptoms, call the NHS 111 or contact your GP without delay. Any affected students are being advised to contact international.student.adviser@
What this means in practice
The Government is 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 includes avoiding using public transport and taxis and visiting public spaces for 14 days after returning from Wuhan.
Where possible, you should avoid having visitors to your home, but it’s ok for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food.
