Tis the season to be jolly and to stay COVID safe!

If you are attending a social gathering or celebration, remember to stay 1.5 metres away from other people.  Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly.  Avoid handshakes, hugs and kisses as much as possible.

The Hostess with the mostest

If you are hosting a holiday celebration, check your local state advice on the maximum number of people allowed to attend.  If possible, keep your guest list small and make sure you get contact details for all guests.  Avoid holding large gathering in crowded indoor spaces, you can reduce the spread of COVID-19 by hosting your gathering outdoors.    Avoid buffets or sharing plates.  Clean frequently touched surfaces regularly with disinfectant.

If your family or friends are at risk or vulnerable, consider having a virtual celebration. 

Going Christmas shopping

Avoid large crowds at shopping centres by doing your holiday shopping early, online or using contactless pickup options. 

If you feel unwell, do not host or attend social gatherings.  If you have cold or flu like symptoms, you should get tested for COVID-19 and stay at home and isolate until you get your results back.

If you are planning to travel interstate these holidays, be aware of the current travel restrictions for your destination.  Do not travel if you are feeling unwell.
