Protecting yourself and others from COVID-19

What can I do to help stop the spread?

To protect yourself and others and help stop the spread of coronavirus:

Face masks

Face masks are an additional physical barrier and help to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Masks are currently mandatory in health care services, passenger transport services, high risk settings, airports and airplanes, personal care, indoor public places and for people in quarantine.

They are also strongly recommended for indoor workplaces and adult learning environments and optional in childhood education services.
