COVID-19 is still around in our communities, and we are experiencing a new spike in cases. It’s important that we all do what we can to protect ourselves, our children, and our mob – to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
COVIDSafe behaviours remain an important part of taking care of each other and ensuring we are doing our best to keep the virus away.
- Keep your hands clean. Where possible, wash hands with soap for at least 20 seconds after you cough, sneeze or go to the toilet, and before you make any food.
- Cough or sneeze into the inside of your arm or elbow, not your hands.
- Put your tissues in the bin after you use them and wash your hands after.
- Don’t touch your face with dirty hands – especially your eyes, nose and mouth. This is where the virus can enter your body.
- Clean surfaces often, such as doors, and the kitchen and bathroom, and use disinfectant spray or wipes where you can to kill any germs.
- Don’t hug or shake hands with people, or share drinks, cigarettes, or vapes.
- Try to practise social distancing, staying 1.5 metres apart or two big steps.
- Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations.
