Most COVID-19 rules have ended, but we can choose how to keep each other safe. For example, places such as churches may choose to ask people to wear a face mask.

You must still:

  • isolate for 7 days if you have COVID-19
  • wear a face mask in healthcare places, such as hospitals or aged care centres.
