What to do if you develop Covid-19 symptoms or test positive

In Wales, Test, Trace, Protect is delivered through NHS Wales and identifies the public as its most important partner, relying on the willingness to report symptoms, identify contacts and follow advice about self-isolating to help keep everyone safe. 

Anyone who develops symptoms of Covid-19 must self-isolate and have a Covid-19 test as soon as possible.
