GENERAL HEALTH ADVICE TO STAY SAFE FROM COVID-19:
To minimise your risk of exposure:

  • Practise social distancing;
  • Stay home and avoid contact with other people if you are unwell;
  • Practise good hygiene to protect yourself against infections. Good hygiene includes:
    – washing your hands often with soap and water;
    – using a tissue and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze;
    – avoiding close contact with others, particularly if they are unwell.
  • Monitor your health closely. If you develop symptoms (fever, a cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath), arrange to see a doctor for an urgent assessment. Please call your doctor or the Coronavirus Information Line 1800 020 080
  • If you are unwell, isolate yourself to prevent spreading any condition to other people;
  • Follow the advice of local authorities;
  • You don’t need to wear a face mask if you’re well. Surgical masks in the community are only helpful in preventing people who are infected with Coronavirus from spreading it to others.
