Protecting yourself and others from COVID-19


What can I do to help stop the spread?

To protect yourself and others and help stop the spread of coronavirus:

  • pharmacies
  • residential aged care and disability care facilities
  • Aboriginal community controlled organisations
  • correctional services, prisons, training centres, and other places of custody.
