As the transmission of COVID-19 spreads, it is increasingly important that support workers understand how to keep themselves and the people they support infection free.
The Department of Health has developed an online learning module and webinar about infection prevention for COVID-19.
Some basics to remember are:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet.
- Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and wash your hands.
- If unwell, avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people).
- Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures.*
