Corona Virus

Corona virus otherwise known as COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus so there is no existing immunity in our community. * Symptons include fever, coughing, a sore throat and shortness of breath. * The virus spreads from person to person. * The virus is spread through close contact with an infectious person (including in the 48 hours before they had symptoms). * Contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze. * Touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face.

Currently there is no cure for this virus

Everyone must wash/sanitise their hands frequently, practise physical distancing and good cough etiquette and follow the Government guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect those who are most at risk.

If you have any symptoms it is very important to get tested.

COVID-19 respiratory clinics are dedicated health centres located around the country, focusing on testing people with symptoms of respiratory infection.
