Covid-19 updates and community information

It is important to get your information from reliable sources. There is evidence of community transmission of COVID-19 in our region. Community transmission means that the number of cases will start to rise. This makes it even more important that people protect themselves and others by staying home and limiting trips in the community. Practice physical distancing by maintaining a distance of 2 metres from others and wash your hands frequently. This will put less people at risk and can flatten the curve.
