Anosmia (loss or change of sense of taste or smell) alone is now a key indicator of COVID-19

As of 18th May2020 the government has included new onset anosmia (a loss or change of sense of taste or smell) as a key symptom of likely Covid 19. Patients who develop this symptom alone or have a new persistent cough or new fever, are required to self isolate at home for 7 days and their family must self isolate for 14 days. If you have developed this symptom recently please do not come to the practice without phoning first to check it is safe to do so.
