If you are in urgent need of mental health support, call one of the following crisis care services: 

The best way to stay up to date on COVID-19 is to check the NSW Government website.

NSW Health is asking all residents of NSW to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and get tested if any arise.

To find your nearest clinic, visit the NSW Government website or contact your GP.

NSW Health is working closely with the Australian Government to plan and implement a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccination program in NSW.

The Australian Government has developed a Australian COVID-19 Vaccination Policy so that everyone can access a safe, effective and free COVID-19 vaccine.

The Australian Government Department of Health website has a vaccination eligibility checker. You can use the vaccination checker to confirm which vaccination phase you are part of, and book your vaccination at a clinic near you.

Both the Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca vaccines offer strong levels of protection against severe COVID-19, regardless of people's individual backgrounds. The type of COVID-19 vaccine offered will depend on which priority group the person is part of, the person's work or residential location, the quantity of vaccine available, and the authorisation for use for each vaccine that is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). You will not be able to choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive.

For further information, please visit the NSW Health and National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance websites. 

From 29 March 2021, face masks are no longer mandatory in any setting.

NSW Health strongly recommends people continue to use a face mask in places where physical distancing cannot be maintained, including on public transport.
