Managing mild COVID-19 at home with assistance from your GP

A guide, action plan and symptom diary for patients

Having a phone and video consultation

People who test positive for COVID-19 are most likely to only experience mild symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment or hospitalisation.

This resource provides information for patients on how to manage a mild case of COVID-19 at home, if they have been advised to do so by their GP, another doctor or local public health unit. This resource is the patient complement to the GP resource Home-care guidelines for adult patients with mild COVID-19.

The resource includes an action plan and symptom diary for patients to help them identify improvements or worsening of their symptoms and to assist the GP in determining whether the management plan needs updating.
