Coronavirus – Information and Guidance
Information and guidance from Southern Health and the Southern District Health Board is provided in these posters in both Chinese and English: coronoavirus-chinese-and-english-southern
Southern Health recommend the following basic principles to reduce the general risk of acute respiratory infections:
- avoid close contact with people suffering acute respiratory infections
- frequently wash hands, especially after contact with ill people or their environment
- people with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
Travellers who become sick within a month of their arrival are encouraged to seek medical advice and contact Healthline at 0800 611 116 or a doctor and share their travel history. It is important to mention recent travel from Wuhan and any known contact with someone with severe acute respiratory illness who may have been in Wuhan.
