Hello everyone, it’s Keisha from the AHCWA Youth Team here. This is just a message for the young mob out there. We just want to let you know that…

At this challenging time with the coronavirus, it’s really important that we take care of our community, and our Elders in particular. And we can do that by staying home, only leaving the house when we really really need to, and social distancing…

Young people can be carriers to this thing, which means you can walk around and you can have it, and you might not even show symptoms. But you might be affecting people that do have autoimmune issues, and you might be infecting older people as well, which this COVID thing really does affect…

This is why it’s important to practice safe social distancing and stay home. Whilst coronavirus is happening, hanging out with other boys and girls isn’t appropriate, and isn’t safe…

Don’t be (in language) new mob, and go to parties, drink-ups, or hang around with your mob in big groups at this time…

Yarn and connect to mob through FaceTime, social media, and online games. It’s up to you to do your part to keep our mob and community safe from coronavirus.
