There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) and Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network (MPHN) are working together to plan for our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
People with acute, cold, flu-like symptoms who are returned travellers, or a contact of a confirmed case, are advised to be tested for COVID-19.

 call HealthDirect 1800 022 222, where a nurse will triage them over the phone and advise as needed or
 contact your GP to arrange an appointment and let them know in advance if you have symptoms (Symptoms might include fever, cough, runny nose or shortness of
breath)

GPS have a critical role in managing patients with mild to moderate symptoms. Patients with more severe symptoms are referred to hospital emergency departments for
care and assessment. Social distancing and hand hygiene are considered the best protection against the virus. MLHD and MPHN encourages all members of the community to wash their hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly (for 20 seconds) and stay away from crowds, sneeze or cough into your elbow, and stay home if sick.
