Slowing the spread of COVID-19 in NSW
NSW residents can help to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19 (coronavirus) through physical distancing.
When physical distancing is combined with good personal hygiene, the spread of a pandemic through the community can be slowed. This helps protect the most vulnerable members of the community and reduces the impact of the pandemic on essential, life-saving health services.
There are many actions individuals, employers and organisations can take now to promote physical distancing and help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection in our community.
Reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection
Take these important steps to keep yourself and others safe.
- Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and other people.
- Do not shake hands, hug or kiss as a greeting.
- Get a seasonal flu shot.
- Avoid visiting vulnerable people, such as those in aged care facilities or hospitals, infants, or people with compromised immune systems.
- If possible, use debit and credit cards instead of cash and make use of online and self-serve transactions.
- If you do have symptoms, get tested and stay at home.
