As a reminder, to prevent the spread:

🔹 Stay at home if you are sick;

🔹 If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested then isolate at home until you get the results and your symptoms resolve;

🔹 If you have to leave your home, stay 1.5 metres away from other people—think two big steps;

🔹 Wash your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser;

🔹 Leave a location if it is crowded.

If you have any concerns about your health, or are unsure if you need to get tested or isolate, or contact 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84). Rural Lifestyle Options Australia will continue to monitor the situation and advise of any further updates.
