2. Exercising is still important for our physical and mental well-being, please do so in a sensible way by social distancing. You can only exercise with one family member or friend.

3. The measures we all have been taking have been showing signs we are heading in the right direction, the overall number of deaths in Australia have been low and more new measures will be even more effective.

Dr Jonathan messages to mob

1.The vast majority of people can recover from the coronavirus, 80% of people don’t have a serious illness and manage at home and get better, of those hospitalised some people end up in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with lung troubles and some may end up with decreased lung function and different organs in the body can have trouble.

2.COVID-19 can be on surfaces we see around us, some items we may come into contact with, remember to keep your hands clean with soap and water or hand sanitiser.

3. If you have got previous lung damage from medical conditions, then it probably places you more at risk, this is an area more research is been done.

1. You can call your health clinic first and have a brief conversation with your Doctor, before visiting your health clinic. You can also call the National Coronavirus Helpline for information on 1800 020 080 this helpline operates  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2. We still need our children to have a quality education, There is a case to say keep your children home if your able too, Some parents are able to keep their children at home as long as that education can continue and be supported, this will depend on the schools, at the moment schools are in the process of preparing a system for online learning.

3. If you are wearing a mask and coffing and sneezing yourself those fluids are going to be trapped inside the mask and could make things worse if you don’t change your mask or are touching your mask. Be mindful that we do have a limited supply of mask.
