Covid-19: A guide to looking after yourself

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

How prepared are you for Omicron? it’s a good idea to prepare your home for the possibility that someone you live with may contract the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron.
If you do test positive, you will have to isolate for at least 14 days in your home, or other suitable accommodation.
Household members of anyone who is infected will need to remain in isolation for at least 10 days after the positive case has been released from isolation.
Omicron can be in your system for a while before symptoms appear, and it’s unclear how infectious you might be during that time, so having a plan in place before you need it can help make your home as safe and comfortable as possible for everyone living in it.
