For those of you who are continuing working, practicing good hygiene and social distancing, Coffs Harbour City Council are also advising any Landcare volunteer in the high risk category to stay at home.
From previous experience with other coronaviruses, the people at most risk of serious infection are:
•people with compromised immune systems (e.g. cancer)
•Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as they have higher rates of chronic illness
•people with diagnosed chronic medical conditions
•people in group residential settings
Some people who are infected may not get sick at all, some will get mild symptoms from which they will recover easily, and others may become very ill, very quickly.
If you are in the high risk category please stay at home.
