Keeping CovidFit with Self-Care
Public Health Gibraltar launches its second COVID campaign that addresses self-care using the catch phrase:
Self-care: How. When. Where
The aim of this campaign is to reinforce what we can do for ourselves when feeling unwell, when we should seek a healthcare professional’s advice, and where to access the appropriate services.
We all experience the same infections differently, yet there are key symptoms to be aware of in regards to the COVID-19 virus. Thses include:
- a new cough
- unexplained headaches
- body fatigue
If you notice new symptoms, go home immediately, and contact 111 for advice. You can also use the government self-test tool [CovidSelfTest.egov.gi] to check symptoms.
COVID-19 remains deadly for the elderly and those with unstable underlying illnesses, however, it is important to remember that there are people who will still suffer and pass away from non-Covid related illnesses and it is vital that you seek help when you need it.
Make sure you know who to contact and when. Visit: CovidFit.gi
