Download the COVIDSafe App

The Australian Government has launched a voluntary app, COVIDSafe, to help health workers notify people who may have been exposed to coronavirus. This will help stop the spread and save lives in our community.

Privacy is well protected, only state health officials will be able to use the information for the express purposes of contact tracing only. It will be a criminal offence to use the information for any other purposes.

You can find out more about the COVIDSafe app at health.gov.au and you can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

I want to reassure you that whilst we are not immune from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are handling very well together as a country.

Practice good hygiene, such as frequent hand washing, using hand sanitizer, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, and avoiding shaking hands.

People should monitor for symptoms such as fever, coughing, shortness of breath or tiredness. If you are unwell or concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), you should self-isolate and call your GP for advice before you visit your doctor. Please do not visit public places.

Some groups are more vulnerable to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) than others, including over-65s and people with pre-existing health conditions, particularly auto-immune diseases or respiratory issues. If you or a family member fall into this category, use extra caution and ensure that all members of the family are practising good hygiene.

A 24/7 National Coronavirus Health Information Line is available on 1800 020 080 for health and situation information on the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

Make sure you follow the most up to date advice of the Chief Medical Officer or the Department of Health.

It is important that our whole community is aware of the risks of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Please ensure this information is shared with your family and friends, particularly those who may not have access to information online or through other sources.
