Community urged not to become COVID-19 complacent

Published:

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson is calling on residents and visitors to continue their efforts to help keep the Sunshine Coast safe by complying with novel coronavirus (COVID-19) state and national public health directions.

“Generally, most people on the Sunshine Coast have done a great job and continue to do the right thing as we work together to manage the impacts of COVID-19,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“But as we are seeing around the world, in other parts of Australia and indeed right now in south Brisbane, it’s vital we remain ever-vigilant and maintain social distancing and personal hygiene practices.

“Please remember these basics - stay 1.5 metres away from other people, wash your hands regularly with soap and water or hand sanitiser and ensure you sneeze or cough into your arm or tissue and put the tissue in the bin.

“Do not become complacent. Doing the right thing to keep everyone safe is very simple.

“Queensland Health is asking for you to stay home if you are sick and be sure to get tested if you have any symptoms of COVID-19.

“Testing is essential, no matter how mild your symptoms are.”

Mayor Jamieson said Sunshine Coast residents needed to support each other’s efforts to comply with public health directions, look out for each other and show kindness and consideration.

“We all have a role to play in slowing the spread and I urge everyone to act responsibly.”  

If you have any of the following COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, call your doctor or 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84) and get tested:

·         Fever

·         Cough

·         Sore throat

·         Shortness of breath

·         Runny nose

·         Fatigue

·         Loss of smell and/or taste.

Call emergency services on Triple Zero (000) if you are very sick.

Visit Queensland Health’s website to find your nearest testing centre and for further information.
