Aboriginal Communities

From June 15, Directions to restrict access to Remote Aboriginal Communities will be removed given the wider spread of COVID-19 across the State, and the lifting of the ban will allow communities to continue their operations in areas such as tourism, community stores, arts and cultural centres.

Is it safe for our Elders to leave the house?

  • Older Aboriginal people have a higher risk of getting very sick with the coronavirus.
  • It’s very important they continue to keep their distance from other people and keep washing their hands.
  • Keep Elders away from other people who are sick, and if you feel sick, keep away from your Elders until you feel better.
  • If your Elders are sick or have an illness, they should stay at home.
