NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant has urged the community to continue to do the little things that can make a big difference when it comes to curbing the spread of COVID and influenza this winter.
“It is important people continue to take simple precautions to protect themselves and each other. This includes wearing a mask indoors when you can’t physically distance, staying at home when you’re unwell, and remembering to practice good hand hygiene,” Dr Chant said.
So far this year in NSW, there have been 14,812 reported flu cases and 3,349 people have presented to emergency departments with influenza-like illnesses.
NSW residents are being urged to book in for their flu vaccine without delay, with winter just a week away and hospitals already seeing a surge in influenza cases.
