LET THEM KNOW
If you or a sexual partner become unwell. It's vital that you let each other know as soon as possible.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include:
- flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue
- shortness of breath
While regular colds and flu continue to circulate, having any of these symptoms should prompt you to ask about getting a COVID-19 test. While unwell, it really important to stay away from others to prevent passing on any illness. If you have COVID-19, you will need to self-isolate and let your sexual partners from the last two weeks know.
If you believe you have been exposed to or have acquired COVID-19, you can call the Coronavirus hotline 1800 675 398 (24 hours).
KEEP KIND AND CARRY ON
Obviously, this is not the first time our community has faced a health issue that has impacted our sexual pleasure and wellbeing. We are incredibly good at adopting effective health strategies - and that will be true of COVID-19. Let’s look out for ourselves and each other in a difficult time.
