Living with Covid

We’re now living with COVID-19.

Victoria is opening up and we’re all going to come into contact with the virus.

As a result, we’ll see more infection in our community. Vaccination is your best defence against getting very sick from COVID-19.

It’s a good idea to be prepared, in case you have to isolate at home. Do you have some meals in the freezer, enough pantry items and some extra pet food?

There’s no need to panic buy, just plan to have a few things on hand so you can look after yourself for a few days until you can arrange a food delivery from your local supermarket or have a friend safely drop off some supplies outside your door.

Buddy up with someone, so you can help each other out if you need it. We’re all going to have to work together over the next few months, so local agencies can support the most vulnerable people in our community first.

If you need support while isolating contact the coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit for the latest information.
