What is Town of Claremont doing in response to COVID-19?

Stop the spread

As a community, there are things we can do to minimise the risks and look after each other.
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or alcohol gel.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze and cough using a tissue or a flexed elbow.
  • Social distancing - the more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Don’t go to work or school if you have symptoms.

If you’re feeling unwell

If you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of travel to an affected area, you must seek medical attention by:
  • attending your GP (phone ahead)
  • visit the Emergency Department (advise staff immediately on arrival)
  • phone the coronavirus Health Information line on 1800 020 080.
