Stop the Spread

As restrictions begin to ease it is important that we all remain vigilant to ensure that we don't give COVID-19 an opportunity to spread again.

Everyone has a responsibility to prevent the spread of viruses like COVID-19.

Social distancing

It is important to continue to maintain a 1.5m distance from other people wherever practical.
People in the following at-risk groups should also limit their activities and stay at home as much as practical for their own protection:
  • People aged 70 or over
  • People aged 60 or over with a chronic issue
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 or over

Personal hygiene

  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid touching your face, nose, and mouth
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue and immediately put the tissue in the bin
  • Avoid physical contact with other people, such as shaking hands and hugging
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 second
  • Stay at home if you become unwell, especially if you are in employment.

Mental health support - COVID-19

It’s normal to feel stress and worry when there is a health event happening in the community that is affecting people’s wellbeing, such as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

This can affect people through isolation from loved ones and usual supports, changes to normal daily routines, changes to or loss of work, difficult financial situations, as well as anxiety about becoming unwell.

To support the mental health of South Australians during this time SA Health have established a  Mental Health Support Network of services based locally in SA. This page provides information about the services and other resources for mental health support during this challenging time.

If you are in self-isolation or quarantine, see the Mental Health information for people in home isolation fact sheet (PDF 325KB) for information and support services.
