Other notes...

Above all else - REST is crucial. You must rest

Medications from doctor may be required in addition.

You will likely lose your appetite, but must eat nutrient rich foods. Avoid sugar where possible (inflammatory). Avoid alcohol & caffiene

If someone is feeding you and delivering food, ensure that they leave at door and then go away before you collect. Keep all food containers in rubbish bags until send of self isolation, then deposit safely (gloves, handled by one member of family)

Panadol can be purchased via doctor prescription at a lower cost than pharmacy or supermarkets

Keep a journal of symptoms experienced each day until completely recovered (this could go for a while - suggest digital if you can)

Make a list of household instructions if you're usually in charge of keeping the house running - feeding pets, paying bills, how to use things, etc

Write down your medical background and any medications you usually take - make sure this can be found easily

Keep a top up of items you regularly use at home in one place so you can easily make a kit and get isolated

Check your doctor can do phone / video consults. If not, find one that can.

Get a medical certificate from the GP to ensure you get your work and payment / benefits covered as required
