Stay Covid safe

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever (37.5 ° or higher)
  • Cough
  • Sore/scratchy throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of smell or loss of taste.

Practise good hygiene

Coronavirus (COVID-19) can survive on some surfaces for a few hours, but can survive on others for up to several days. With good personal hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, the virus can be killed.

Personal hygiene

These simple steps can help to protect yourself and the community.

  • Clean your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing or use your elbow, not your hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, and stay home if you have.
  • Avoid touching your face and avoid shaking hands with others.
  • Try to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from others and avoid crowded places.

Remember, when washing your hands, all you need is water and soap, body wash or shampoo. It doesn’t need to be expensive, or ‘antibacterial’. The key to handwashing is to wash often and wash well, for at least 20 seconds.

If you have been outside

If you have to leave home, when you return:

  • Wash your hands as soon as you enter and after putting groceries or other items away.
  • Wash your hands before you eat.
  • If you would feel better to do so, remove your shoes and clothing if you have been on public transport or in spaces where you weren’t able to keep 1.5 metres from others.
  • Wipe down your phone.
  • Keep your keys in one place.

  • Call Service NSW 24 hours, 7 days a week on 13 77 88
  • National Coronavirus Helpline 1800 020 080 – for information or advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
