Community transmission is here

Let’s work together to stop the spread. Bass Coast Health strongly encourages everyone in the community to stop the spread. You can achieve this through getting your third dose of vaccine (booster), hand hygiene, keeping your distance and wearing a mask if you cannot, and staying home if unwell and get tested when you notice symptoms.


COVID-19 testing

If you feel unwell with any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, you should have a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT). These can be bought from supermarkets and pharmacies.

Symptoms of COVID include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, and loss of sense of smell or taste. 

COVID-19 vaccination

Bass Coast Health encourages you to continue to get vaccinated and ensure you have as many COVID vaccinations as you're eligible for, to give yourself the best protection possible. 

COVID vaccinations are available at participating GP clinics and pharmacies.
