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:

Face masks

Face masks are an additional physical barrier and help to stop the spread of COVID-19.

At this time in South Australia it is not mandatory for the general community, but it is recommended to wear a mask when out in public if you are unable to physically distance.

There are some cases where masks are mandatory, such as while on an airplane or at any airport during your journey.
