COVID19 Stay Informed

In these ever changing and sometimes confusing times, it’s natural to feel a little concerned. We want to reassure you that you will find the most up-to-date and accurate information HERE regarding COVID19 in NSW.

For local information and news about what’s happening or where to get tested in Penrith, Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury & Lithgow visit the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District COVID19 information page.

One of the most useful approaches to managing uncertainty, is to rely only on credible information sources, so do yourself a favour and be careful (and critical) about information that is shared on social media. If something you read or hear does seem a little odd, then be sure to check it out rather than assume it to be correct.

If you are concerned and want to speak with someone, you can call the COVID19 Hotline on 1800 020 080 and you will be directed to the most appropriate person.

Finally, thanks to our friends @ ACON for some great tips and reminding us how to manage stress and anxiety during the pandemic; but if you would like to talk to someone about your anxiety, check out a range of options for local counselling services HERE – most are available over the phone or for video consult.
