Kooweerup Regional Health Service continues to be vigilant and follow the Australian and Victorian Department of Health and Aged Care Guidelines. The Victorian Government is directing all Victorians to stay at home to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
To date, the majority of confirmed cases of coronavirus are linked to overseas travel; however there are an increasing number of locally acquired cases emerging in the community. By staying at home and limiting your contact with other people, we can all reduce the spread of the virus.
If you can stay home, you must stay home.
Eligible Victorians in mandatory self-isolation running short on food and unable to have any dropped-off by family and friends, are now eligible for a “food and personal care package”. This package contains two-weeks supply of essential food items. People wishing to request a pack should call Victoria’s dedicated Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
As this is a rapidly changing situation, please visit the Department of Health and Human Services website for the latest updates, including advice on symptoms and precautions.
