Guidance for Wembley International Hotel Guests regarding Coronavirus COVID-19
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.
The recommended way to deal with the risk of Coronavirus is to:
1. Identify potential cases
2. isolate individuals at risk and
3. seek specialist advice
Symptoms of coronavirus
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
a high temperature
shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.
How coronavirus is spread
Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person. Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.
It’s very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.
Treatment for coronavirus
There is currently no specific treatment for coronavirus.
Antibiotics do not help, as they do not work against viruses.
Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms while your body fights the illness.
You’ll need to stay in isolation away from other people until you’ve recovered.
How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
always wash your hands when you get home or into work
use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
What to do if you think you might have coronavirus
If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it:
stay at home and avoid close contact with other people
do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next
The 111 coronavirus service will tell you if you need to continue self-isolate or if you need medical help.
