We've all enjoyed seeing restrictions ease, so let's work together to keep it that way.
For COVID-19 rates to remain under control, we all need to do our part and get tested with even the mildest of symptoms, even after vaccination.
High testing rates give us certainty that there are no undetected lines of community transmission.
This means that the more we test, the more certain we can be that we're finding all active cases of COVID. So, encourage your family & friends to get tested early too!
If you have even the mildest of symptoms, don't wait to see how you feel tomorrow. Don't take some medication and wait a few hours. Go out and get tested now. Once you've been tested, isolate until you receive a negative result. Testing is FREE, and you don't need a Medicare card.

The COVID-19 vaccine helps reduce transmission, and reduce the risk of serious lasting illness or death. It's important that as many people as possible get the vaccine as early as possible. The vaccine is free for anyone in Australia.
Being vaccinated reduces your risk of catching COVID or transmitting it to others, and reduces its impact on you if you are infected. It doesn't mean you can't catch it, or can't pass it on, but helps in minimising the risk.
Once you're vaccinated, you must still follow all guidelines around use of masks, COVID testing, and self-isolation where required.
