All Australians have a role to play to defeat coronavirus and we do that by slowing down its spread. Every, single Australian needs to do their part - practice social distancing - that’s staying 1.5m away from each other - good hand hygiene, and if you feel even slightly sick or have the sniffles, please stay home and isolate yourself from other people. By sticking together and supporting each other, we will get through this, we will protect and save lives, and we will bounce back stronger on the other side.
