Covid-19

What are the symptoms of COVID-19? 

Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly. People with COVID-19 may experience:

  • Fever
  • Flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue
  • Shortness of breath


How does COVID-19 spread? 

The virus can spread from person to person through:

  • Close contact with an infectious person (including in the 24 hours before they started showing symptoms)
  • Contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze
  • Touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face


What if I think I have symptoms of COVID-19? 

If you are sick and think you have symptoms of COVID-19, seek medical advice. If you want to talk to someone about your symptoms, feel free to contact us.


How can I protect myself and others? 

Everyone must do the following things to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect those who are most at risk.

  • Practice good hygiene
  • Practice social distancing
  • Avoid public gatherings
  • Practice self-isolation if you are unwell


Access to Medication

There is currently no need to panic and bulk buy medication. We do recommend that you don’t allow your regular and essential prescription medications to almost run out before you organise a new prescription. Check out the government website for more frequent updates and information.
