Protect yourself and others from COVID-19
There is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. These simple steps can slow the spread of the virus — protecting yourself and others.
Stay home if you are sick
If you are feeling unwell, isolate wherever you are and call Healthline about a free COVID-19 test. By getting a test, you are helping keep your community safe. If in doubt, rule it out.
Keep track of where you have been
Scan QR codes wherever you go, and turn on Bluetooth tracing. Using the app will help our health services reach people quickly to stop any possible spread of COVID-19.
Wear a face covering
Wearing a face covering helps keep you and others safe. They are useful when physical distancing is harder. You legally must wear a face covering in some locations. Keep your community safe, and cover for each other.
Practise good hygiene
Wash your hands
Washing your hands is one of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe. Wash often with soap for 20 seconds. Then dry. This kills the virus by bursting its protective bubble.
Cough or sneeze into your elbow
It will keep the virus off your hands, so you will not spread it to other people and make them sick too.
Regularly clean surfaces that get touched frequently.
