Public Health Resources

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started everyone has been talking about the importance of public health measures to minimise the spread of the virus, there are other diseases that we cannot forget about that need to be notified to the public health units. Each state in Australia have their own section about notifiable disease and how to contact the public health teams, I would encourage you to read up about this on the government website.
