Our COVID-safe Guidelines 

As more is known about the virus that causes COVID-19, and the health and safety circumstances improve, we're able to shift to behaviour-focussed guidelines, moving away from rules and regulations. We need everyone in our community to follow these guidelines to keep our community safe.

There are five key behaviours we should all make part of our every day lives:

  • Maintain good hand and cough hygiene
  • Keep your distance
  • Stay home if you're unwell and get tested
  • Check in using the 'Check In CBR' app
  • Stay informed

Please remember to isolate and get tested if you feel unwell.

Alert the COVID Response Office through this online form if you are a confirmed case of COVID-19.

You no longer need to notify the COVID Response Office if you are identified as a contact or notified of a requirement to quarantine or stay-at-home.
