Staying safe

There are five important things we can do to keep our families and community safe from coronavirus.

Staying safe animation transcript

There are five important things we can do to keep  our families and community safe from coronavirus. 

One - Wash our hands and water  and use hand sanitiser regularly. 

Two - Stay at least 1.5 metres  apart from other people. 

Three - Wear a face mask that covers our mouth  and nose when we can’t keep our distance. 

Four - Meet our family and friends outside, because we’re less likely  to catch the virus outdoors.

Five - Get tested quickly and stay home if we feel  sick . Do not go to work or visit other people.
