What groups of people need to take extra precautions?
People with underlying medical conditions, especially if not well-controlled, and some older people are at higher-risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
If I am at higher risk, should I still stay at home?
You do not have to stay at home, but do take extra precautions when you go out. Like everybody, you can only go out for essential purposes – like getting food, going to the pharmacy, to exercise or to work (if you cannot work from home).
However, you may prefer to get essential supplies through family, friends or neighbours or get them delivered.
Wash your hands often, keep 2 metres distance from others, protect your bubble, and get your flu jab.
Can I go to work?
At Level 3 everyone must work from home if they can.
If you cannot work from home, you can to go work if you agree with your employer that you can do safely.
Can my in-home carer visit?
Yes. Essential in-home care for those with disabilities or health conditions is permitted. Services will be modified to reduce the risks of COVID-19.
