Stop the Spread of COVID-19: A Simple Guide from Precision Dental
Testing for coronavirus is now widely available across Australia.
If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.
The federal government’s coronavirus tracing app COVIDSafe is available for download from your phone’s app store.
With the COVID-19 outbreak, health care professionals are urging people to refrain from touching their face.
There’s no question it’s easier said than done.
From picking objects up to turning knobs, we’re touching surfaces contaminated with pathogens.
These pathogens can be picked up by our hands and get into the body through the face (eyes, nose, and mouth) that act as pathways to the throat and lungs.
Follow these simple tips to prevent the spread of the virus:
Wash your hands with soap and water.
Wash them for at least 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Viruses that cause colds can enter your body this way and make you sick.
Practise social distancing.
Keep at least 1-metre distance between anyone, especially when you’re in public places.
If you have serious symptoms such as difficulty breathing or experiencing cold or flu symptoms, arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.
