A PLEA FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING from Southern NSW Local Health District

Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) has pleaded calls for locals within the District, especially our youth, to adhere to social distancing measures to help slow the spread of the Novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Social distancing means reducing the number of close physical and social contacts we have with one another, while not always possible, keeping at least 1.5 metres away from other people. Dr Anthony Stevenson, local GP anaesthetist at Queanbeyan Hospital and Chair of the Medical Staff Executive Council for the District, says when social distancing is combined with good personal hygiene measures the spread of a pandemic through the community can be slowed. “It seems the message just isn’t getting through to our teenagers, who don’t realise their actions will put lives at risk. Keeping at least 1.5 metres away from each other, helps protect the most vulnerable members of the community and reduces the impact of the pandemic on essential, life-saving health services,” Dr Stevenson said.
