Are you "Covid Ready"

With daily case numbers on the rise, the consesus in Queensland is that it’s not so much a matter of ‘if’ you’ll get COVID-19, but ‘when’.

Of course, you may never get infected with COVID-19. But if you do, there’s no need to panic.

As per the Governement directive, most Australians who get COVID-19 will be able to manage their symptoms at home.

Some simple things you can do to keep yourself, your friends and your family safe include:

What to keep in your Kit

As per the Queenland Governements Covid Care Pathway Plan, things to include in your “Covid-Ready” kit are:

  • Thermometer
  •  Pain-relief medicine
  • Your usual medications
  • Treatment for dehydration
  • Disposable surgical masks
  • Hand sanitiser and soap
  • Cleaning products and disposable gloves
  • Phone Numbers of who to call if you need help
  • Activities to keep you sane at home
  • Essential food for you and your household for two weeks –  including  food for your pets. If needed, arrange a friend or family member who doesn’t live with you to shop for you and leave it at your door
