COVID Infographic Here for You to Return Home – Keep COVID Away!
We have created the COVID infographic here for you to return home to help you and keep COVID away. Now that many restrictions are easing across Australia, people are starting to get back into old routines. Please understand to keep safe we must know that the COVID virus is very infectious, is easy to transmit, and is invisible.
While you start to move around and go places with good hand hygiene, social-distancing understand that anything you touch could have virus on it. By adopting these simple practices to leave COVID at the shops, work, school or hospitals you visit, you will be in a much better position to stop catching the virus from strangers.
The places to be most careful
The most dangerous places are indoors or where you are likely to be in close contact to others (e.g. workplaces, gyms, public-transport, restaurants, public toilets, cafes and shopping centres such as Bunnings, Spotlight etc). I call out these two specifically, as I went into both yesterday, and was horrified at people sneezing randomly, getting within social-distance from me, including bumping into me and just acting like before COVID!
These are not normal times and we need to adjust our behaviour until no more COVID transmission happens in Australia, which may take another 6-12 months even longer, it is hard to say, definitely not a few weeks.
By taking this info on board you will not bring COVID home – a place, that should be safe for you to relax in and your family as well, particularly if you or they are immune-compromised (e.g. such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, chronic lung diseases) or are who are vulnerable in other ways.
We at Health Equals Freedom hope your year can improve and you get back to normal sooner rather than later, but know the COVID-19 pandemic is a marathon, rather than a sprint in terms of changes to our behaviours.
