Inside this Issue!

The COVID-19 webpage resource has been updated and includes further information and videos to support our communities across central Hume.

We acknowledge there is a rapidly unfolding public health response to COVID-19 and would like to thank those services and staff who have been working tirelessly to respond, and to prepare for continued response to this virus. We are appreciative of those who are not only trying to support their own family, but who are also there for other individuals and families in our community.
Central Hume PCP has put together a COVID-19 webpage resource providing information on prevention, social connection & mental wellbeing. It has links to local information and information for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It won’t be static as we will review and add as we come across resources.
We hope it will be a beneficial resource to the communities across Central Hume.
