Managing COVID-19

Most people will have minor symptoms, particularly if you have been vaccinated and are otherwise healthy. If you're unsure whether you need medical care for your symptoms or if you feel you might require medical assessment or treatment, you can:

  1. Call Healthdirect (24/7) on 1800 022 222 to speak with a registered nurse.
  2. Contact your general practitioner, local GP practice or usual specialist.
  3. Use the Healthdirect Australia COVID-19 Symptom and Antiviral Eligibility Checker. You may benefit from antiviral medicines if you are at high risk of developing severe illness.

You should seek medical advice (1800 022 222) if you are not improving after 2 or 3 days, or are getting sicker, have a chronic health condition or are pregnant.
