Why must we keep apart from each other?

COVID-19 spreads mainly when we breathe in small droplets produced when someone with COVID-19 breathes, coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or shouts.

PACK Home - social distance at taps showing virus

Keep apart from others to allow less chance for coronavirus to spread.

  • This will help protect those at risk of severe COVID-19 – those over 55 years or with diabetes, HIV, TB, kidney disease, hypertension, chronic lung disease or cancer.
  • It will also mean less stress on our clinics and hospitals so that those who need healthcare can still get it.

How do we keep apart from each other?

PACK Home - school queue

Keep at least 1,5 metres apart from people.

Only visit public spaces and use public transport when necessary.
