Important information for people with diabetes

What you need to know about COVID-19

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. Symptoms include fever, coughing, sore throat and shortness of breath. The virus can spread from person to person, but good hygiene can prevent infection.

We can all help to stop the spread of the virus by practicing good hygiene including washing hands regularly, using tissues and covering mouths when we cough or sneeze and avoiding close contact with others. People should participate in social distancing behaviours to help minimise the spread of the virus.

This website is updated regularly to ensure people with diabetes and their families are kept up to date with relevant new information about the virus.
