  • Important coronavirus information from the Department of Health

    Official advice is to follow these steps to help slow the spread of the virus and to reduce the risk of infection:

    ➡️ Wash your hands with soap and water regularly and thoroughly; this means for at least 20 seconds

    ➡️ Cough or sneeze into your elbow or into a clean tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin

    ➡️ Stay 1.5 metres away from others. If you are sick, stay home

    ➡️ If you're feeling sick or showing symptoms of coronavirus, you should call your GP for advice — they will tell you if you need to get tested

    ➡️ For more information and tips to help improve your safety and wellbeing, visit the Federal Government's official advice website
