Living with COVID-19

All Schools
A reminder for over the holidays

As we learn to live safely with coronavirus (COVID-19), there are actions we can all take to help reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and passing it on to others. These actions will also help to reduce the spread of other respiratory infections, such as flu, which can spread easily and may cause serious illness in some people.

Guidance for living safely with respiratory infections, including coronavirus (COVID-19) explains simple things you can do in your daily life that will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections and protect those at highest risk. Things you can choose to do are:

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors.
  • Practise good hygiene:
  • wash your hands
  • cover your coughs and sneezes
  • clean your surroundings frequently
  • Wear a face covering or a face mask.

There is an easy read leaflet and translated documents that you can share with parents too.
