The new list of symptoms includes the three previously listed and adds:

  • shortness of breath
  • Feeling tired or exhausted
  • A body that hurts
  • headache
  • A sore throat
  • A stuffy or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhea
  • Feeling sick or being sick

The list is a clear departure from the previous one and greatly expands on the previous warnings.

It comes after months of reports that the new variants of Covid elicited different reactions in people, leaving them with different symptoms.

You used to be advised to get tested as soon as possible if people showed any of the symptoms, “even if they were mild”.

However, now under new government guidelines you are simply advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you have symptoms, such as a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out your normal activities.

That means if you have the symptoms but feel well enough to go to work, under the new guidelines, the government advises you to do so.
