abbaCare & COVID-19

What is COVID-19?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. The virus can spread from person to person. Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or loss or taste or smell.

We can all help stop the spread:

  • Get tested if you have symptoms (even if mild).
  • Practise good hygiene.
  • Download the COVIDSafe app.
  • Keep 1.5 metres distance from others wherever, whenever possible.

How is covid-19 Spread?

COVID-19 is most likely to spread from person-to-person through:
  • Direct close contact with a person while they are infectious or in the 24 hours before their symptoms appear.
  • close contact with a person with a confirmed infection who coughs or sneezes; and/or
  • touching objects or surfaces (such as door handles or tables) contaminated from a cough or sneeze from a person with a confirmed infection, and then touching your mouth or face.

How can you help prevent the spread of covid-19?

Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene and keeping your distance from others when you are sick is the best defence against most viruses. Specifically, you should:
  • sanitise or wash your hands before and after entering a home, preparing or eating food, going to the bathroom, touching your face or blowing your nose.
  • cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue, dispose of tissues immediately into a bin, and wash your hands.
  • if you are unwell, stay at home and avoid contact with others; and exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures by staying at least 1.5 metres away from people.
