No time for virus complacency: WACHS warns regional communities

Regional communities are being warned against COVID-19 complacency by WA Country Health Service.

Principal health officer Helen Van Gessel warned country communities to not underestimate the risk of COVID-19 and said they only needed to look to Victoria and New Zealand to see just how easily a COVID wave could emerge.

“While we may have eliminated the virus from our community, we have not eliminated the threat,” principal health officer Helen Van Gessel said.

The health and safety of country communities remains our top priority.

“But we need each individual to play their part too — you need to physically distance, you need to practice good personal hygiene, you need to stay at home if you’re sick and you need to get tested if you have flu like symptoms.”
