How can you help?

In this uncertain time, it’s incredibly important that we all do our bit to get through this. Please follow all guidelines provided by the Federal and State Governments and the Government’s Health Authorities.

It’s important that if you have any symptoms, even if mild, that you get tested for COVID-19 immediately. Stay home while waiting for results.

Keep 1.5m between you and others and wear a mask at all times when in public spaces. Maintain good hygiene to stop the spread of Coronavirus. Try following these good hygiene habits.

Please remember, you are not alone. We are all in this together. The MS Society team is still here to support you. Please contact MS Assist on 1800 812 311 to speak with an MS staff member.
