Our experience over the last few months has shown that when we work together, we can achieve anything.
In order to return safely to our normal daily routines, we need to increase the community’s ability to track and contain any future COVID-19 outbreaks. The Health Department’s COVIDSafe app is designed to do just that; by tracing the possible movements of COVID-19 and helping to alert people who’ve been in close contact with someone with COVID-19.

So far, our joint efforts to follow public health advice have resulted in flattening the curve and easing restrictions, including those for elective surgeries. Extras providers such as dentists are also re-opening, ensuring your day-to-day health needs can continue to be met.
While we’ll always continue to support the health and wellbeing of our members during this difficult time, we believe a greater uptake of the COVIDSafe app will pave the way for making more health support services available.
