COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The health and wellbeing of Road Trauma Support Services Victoria and the greater community is a key priority for us. We are continuing to review and monitor the coronavirus situation as it unfolds.

The steps and decisions we are taking are in lock-step with the most recent advice from the State and Federal Departments of Health. We will continue to adjust our operations as necessary.

We can all play a role in reducing the spread of the virus. Simple precautions and planning make a big difference.

If you have a cough or other flu symptoms (like a fever, sore throat or a runny nose), you may put our people at risk. Please reschedule your counselling appointment or attendance at our education programs until you are well again.

How can we help prevent the spread of coronavirus?

Practising good hand hygiene and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against most viruses:

  • wash hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
  • cover coughs and sneezes, dispose of tissues and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
  • if you are feeling unwell, avoid contact with others such as touching, kissing, hugging

More information

While coronavirus is of concern, it is essential to remember that most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness are likely suffering from a cold or other respiratory illness—not coronavirus.
