Woman reading magazine​Many people with COVID-19 can manage safely at home.

If you are concerned about your symptoms, you can call

  • your GP
  • Healthdirect - 1800 022 222

You should call 000 if you:

  • feel very dizzy, drowsy or confused
  • are having trouble breathing
  • have chest pressure or pain lasting more than 10 minutes
  • feel like you might faint when you stand.


To reduce the risk to others NSW Health recommends you:

  1. Stay home until you feel better.
  2. Don't visit people at high risk for at least 7 days.
    This means anyone in hospital or an aged or disability care facility.
  3. Wear a mask when indoors and on public transport, if you must leave your home.
  4. Avoid large gatherings and indoor crowded places, especially where you will be in contact with groups of people you don't live with.


Tell people that you live with, or spend a lot of time with, that you have COVID-19.

People you live with or spend a lot of time indoors with are at greatest risk of catching COVID-19 from you.
