Stay COVIDSafe

During the upcoming holidays it is important that we stay COVIDSafe. As we start to enjoy our summer, we need to be aware the next wave of COVID-19 has arrived. Cases are again on the increase. We know that what can be a mild illness for some people can be life threatening for others.

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.

For more information, visit the Department of Health and Aged Care website or check out the Living with COVID-19 information pack, including information on testing for COVID-19, what to do if you test positive for COVID-19, and how to practise COVIDSafe behaviours.
