m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=412972727538706&id=100064779454301There’s a new wave of COVID-19 in the community with the BA.4 and BA.5 strains now taking precedence.
A surge in infections from these strains is expected to impact our hospitals in late July and August.
And this time, it will be more challenging because influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are also doing the rounds.
If you haven’t had a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine, now is the time. A third dose may not prevent you from catching COVID-19 but it will greatly reduce the chances of you ending up in hospital.
Please wear a mask whenever you can’t socially distance from others and wash your hands as often as possible.
The pandemic is far from over.
Please help us keep you safe over the next few months.
To book a vaccine, please visit: www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/book-covid-vaccination

We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.

Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.

It must be a genuine commitment by all of us to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.

It’s also time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations—they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights.

Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms.

We need to move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments. Enough is enough.

The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with us to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome.

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
