Protecting our families and communities
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we need to do everything we can to keep our vulnerable community members safe, especially Elders and those with chronic conditions such as diabetes and cardiac disease, respiratory issues and renal disease.
The best thing we can do is to practice good hygiene. This means washing your hands regularly, following the rules around social distancing and travel restrictions, and getting tested if unwell.
