What do I do if I feel sick?

I feel sick, or someone I care for feels sick. What do I do?

You, or the person you’re caring for, should stay home. Don’t go to work or school. This is important to stop the spread of any illness. Get plenty of rest and drink lots of water.

If you haven’t been overseas in the past 14 days, or been in contact with someone who has novel coronavirus (Covid-19), right now it’s more likely you’ll have a different illness, like a cold or flu.

If you have travelled overseas or been in contact with a confirmed case of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the past 14 days,  phone your doctor for further advice.
