Health information

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues we all have a role to play in stopping the spread within the community.

We must all take steps to keep our vulnerable community members safe, especially Elders and those with health conditions such as diabetes, renal disease, cardiac and respiratory issues.

To protect yourself and others, make sure to practise good hygiene, follow social distancing rules and stay at home if you are sick. It’s also important to keep well by eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, sleeping well and reducing stress.
