South Australian Emergency Services are being inundated with TRIPLE ZERO calls from the public, wanting information and advice about COVID-19.
Only call TRIPLE ZERO if you have an emergency- if someone is seriously injured or in need of urgent medical help, if life is being threatened, or if you have just witnessed a serious accident or crime.
By calling TRIPLE ZERO in a circumstance that is not an emergency you are putting lives at risk because you are redirecting crucial emergency resources.
If you need to seek advice about COVID-19, contact the National Coronavirus Information Hotline on 1800 020 080, visit www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/covid2019, and follow SA Health on social media.
If you are suffering from a life threatening illness or in an urgent situation call TRIPLE ZERO.
