Advice: "Behave as if you've got it and you don't want to spread it"


COVID-19 is transmited from person to person, usually when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Transmission may occur from contaminaded surfaces, so it is important to frequently wash your hands.
COVID-19 can cause symptoms similar to the flu, including fever, cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath.
Most people who are infected experience mild to moderate symptoms from which they fully recover.
However, some people develop more serious illness with pneumonia and other complications.
People at increaded risk of serious illness include the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions (e.g. diabetes, heart and lung disease) or weakened immune system.
To protect yourself and others from infection, practice good hand and respiratory hygiene:
- cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs;
- covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing;
- avoiding contact with anyone who has symptoms such a fever, a cough, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
- staying home if you are unwell.
If you have arrived from overseas since 12 am 16 March 2020 you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
