Social Distancing

All Australians are required to maintain social distancing measures and good hygiene as restrictions around the country start to be lifted.

You should also practise good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene:

  • wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
  • cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser, and
  • avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people).

These simple, common sense actions help reduce risk to you and to others. They will help to slow the spread of disease in our communities – and you can use them every day – in your home, workplace, school and while out in public.
