"If anyone is concerned that they may have COVID-19 symptoms, they should not visit a health setting. Instead they should use the NHS 111 online service in the first instance 111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19 to check out their symptoms and get advice and information about what to do next," said a BLMK spokesman.
