Exercising social distancing measures

Social distancing includes staying at home when unwell, avoiding large public gatherings if they’re not essential, keeping a distance of 1.5 metres with other people whenever possible and minimising physical contact especially with people at higher risk of developing serious symptoms, such as older people and people with existing health conditions.

Following self-isolation measures

All people who arrive in Australia from midnight 15 March 2020 or think may they have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus, are required to self-isolate for 14 days.
