What do I do if I (or someone in my household) have developed symptoms of COVID-19?

Updated 15th March 2020 

  • Inform your Manager and/or HR and do NOT attend work;
  • If you are seriously unwell and it is an emergency, call 000 immediately.
  • Continue to keep yourself apart from other people as much as possible (e.g. in a different room).
  • Wear a surgical mask if you have one.
  • Call your local public health unit on 1300 066 055; they will assess you and advise on what to do next.
  • If you can’t contact the public health unit, see a doctor, preferably at a hospital emergency department, as soon as possible.
  • Phone the emergency department before attending so they can make arrangements for when you arrive to prevent the spread of infection to others.
  • Do not travel on public transport, use taxis or rideshares? and do not attend any public places.
