How we are protecting our customers

We are committed to ensuring the safety of our customers, staff, and others who visit our services and sites. We have been monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely, and we will continue to do so.

Right now, the most important things we can all do are:

  • Wash our hands properly.
  • Cough or sneeze into our elbow or a tissue.
  • Go to the doctor if we feel unwell. Please do not visit our services or sites if you are feeling unwell.
  • Ask our GP about the influenza vaccine. This will help boost our immune systems and help prevent other illnesses.
  • Only trust reliable sources of information about the virus. We recommend the World Health Organisation, or the Australian Department of Health.
