To all members,

Everyone of you can help to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19 (coronavirus) through social distancing. The following link is the simple steps for slowing the spread by social distancing:


The most important action you can take is to practise good hand hygiene.

To reduce your exposure and chances of getting COVID-19:

- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, throw used tissues in the bin and clean your hands with soap and water or sanitiser. If you donít have a tissue, sneeze or cough into a flexed elbow.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces each day.
Stay home if you are sick and donít expose others. If you are unwell with flu-like symptoms, do not go outside your home, do not go to work, school or shops unless it is essential.
- Get a flu shot when it becomes available.
- Talk with your doctor and pharmacist about getting an emergency supply of any medications that you or your family regularly take.
- Do not shake hands, hug or kiss as a greeting.
- Keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and other people.
- Avoid visiting vulnerable people, such as those in aged care facilities or hospitals, infants, or people with compromised immune systems.
- Visit shops sparingly, buy food online where possible and consider home delivery and take-away.
- Use debit and credit cards instead of cash where possible and make use of online and self-serve transactions.
- Use public transport in off-peak periods if you can.
