Tue 17/3/20 COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

Everyone must practise good hygiene to protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading.
To help reduce the spread and protect those who are most at risk, it is important that you take the recommended steps to protect yourself and others, including practicing good hygiene, self-isolation, and social distancing.
Those most at risk are people over the age of 65 and those in remote communities. If you think you may have contracted Coronavirus, please contact your GP and discuss over the phone. Please DO NOT go to your doctor in person as you risk infecting others. There is a global shortage of the test kits that pathologists use to diagnose COVID-19. The Dept. of Health is overseeing targeted testing.
