Community members urged to be vigilant…
As restrictions start to ease it’s important that we keep doing the simple things to help protect ourselves and others.
It is also important to remember that the coronavirus (COVID-19) is still very real and if we continue to be vigilant this will assist with flattening the curve and may be the difference between an outbreak and business as usual.
Continuing to use social distancing (also called physical distancing) is one way to help slow the spread of viruses and help protect the vulnerable people in our community who are at most risk of getting really sick.
So let’s continue to stop the spread
Here are 5 ways we can all help stop the spread of viruses
- Stay home if you’re sick. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, get tested.
- Clean your hands regularly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or bent elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your face, nose and mouth. And avoid shaking hands.
- Keep 1.5 metres away from others as much as you can — think two big steps
Members of the community are encouraged to keep informed on the latest COVID-19 health advice at the QLD Health Website, phoning 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) or visiting Council’s website - ‘COVID-19’ page or Council’s Facebook page.
South Burnett Regional Council reminds residents to follow the Queensland Government messaging: If you are sick, stay home; if you're feeling unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, you should contact your doctor about being tested; practice social distancing; continue good hygiene practices.
