by Department of Health Queensland - Sunday 15th March 2020:

 

Pandemic preparation

 

The World Health Organisation has characterized COVID-19 novel coronavirus as a pandemic . In Queensland, this does not change our health advice.

Queenslanders should go about their daily lives. You will receive advanced notice if you need to do anything differently.

We understand you may be feeling concerned, but we want to reassure you that we have one of the best health systems in the world and are prepared to tackle coronavirus.

The best things you can do right now are keep up-to-date with our information, wash your hands often and properly, stay 1.5 metres away from people coughing or sneezing, and stay home if you’re sick.

Queensland Department of Health - 15th March 2020

 

Testing and fever clinics

 

If you haven’t been overseas or been in contact with a confirmed case, you will not be tested for novel coronavirus because it is more likely you have another virus such as a cold or influenza.
