COVID-19 advice for older people

Older people and people with chronic health conditions are more at risk of serious infection from COVID-19 and should take precautions.

Those at risk should talk to their doctor about what is appropriate for them.

Looking after your mental health is also important. 

Resuming activities and interests

To maintain social connections and improve wellbeing, older South Australians are encouraged to resume activities, including going back to work and volunteering.

If you do go out or resume some of your usual activities or interests, you should continue to stay 1.5m away from others where possible, and keep practicing good hygiene.

Remember: Stay home if you are sick or feel unwell and talk to your GP about being tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms.
