The coronavirus spreads when tiny drops from coughs and sneezes land on surfaces that others touch.

You can help reduce the risk by coughing or sneezing into your elbow or a tissue. Put it in a bin straight away.

Keep your hands clean.

Where possible, wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds when you cough, sneeze, make food or after going to the toilet.

Clean surfaces regularly such as tables, kitchen benches, door handles, railings as well as commonly used items such as toys, phones, keys and wallets. Try and use antibacterial spray or disinfectant to remove the germs.

We all need to protect our Elders and community.

Together we can keep our mob safe and stop the spread.

Information is changing regularly. Stay up to date via, visit or call the Coronavirus Helpline at 1800 020 080.
