Information on government website
The latest information about coronavirus, updated several times a day as changes evolve, is available on the website Australia.gov.au, according to Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks.
There is also a National Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080 which was available at all hours.
Ms Wicks said the website was a central source of information, divided into several groups:
These included up-to-date essential information, a symptom checker, health and prevention, information for travelers, financial support, information for education suppliers, information for businesses and employees, and information to support the community.
"It is essential that we keep informed as knowledge is the key and this website is the government's way of keeping communities as up-to-date as possible surrounding the coronavirus," Ms Wicks said.
"This website will provide key updates on the Government's response across all categories, linking readers to the relevant department websites."
