If you feel sick 

Remember that if you are feeling unwell and think you have symptoms of COVID-19 (such as fever, sweats or chills, sore throat, shortness of breath and/or loss of sense of smell or taste), seek medical advice and get a free test.

  • Get tested if you're not feeling well. Call your local Aboriginal health service or the COVID-19 hotline 1800 675 398 to find out where.
  • Work-from-home, if you can and are well enough to do so.
  • Keep-up-to date with the latest COVID-19 information

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are a high-risk group (due to higher rates of pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung disease) so it's important that we get tested as soon as we present with any coronavirus symptoms.

 

Call your local Aboriginal health service or the COVID-19 hotline on 1800 675 398 to see where you can get tested.
