[Jill Gallagher AO]: So it’s really important that if you or someone in your home has symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or fever – they should stay away from everyone else and get tested straight away.

Call your local doctor or your Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation. They will tell you where to go for testing. 

You can also call the coronavirus 24-hour hotline on 1800 675 398.

[Jill Gallagher AO]: This is serious stuff and just as important for young people as it is for our elders.

We all have a part in keeping our mob safe and well.

Make sure you play your part and we’ll all be ok.
