Wicks urges residents to remain calm

Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks has urged residents to stay calm and use common sense as coronavirus restrictions are imposed.

"Prime Minister Scott Morrison has made a number of changes that will affect communities across Australia, including here on the Central Coast," Ms Wicks said.

"Several of these measures being enacted will ensure the safety of individuals and assist in slowing the spread of coronavirus within our communities.

"A common concern of many within my community is around schools.

"Schools are exempt from the new restrictions, with all schools remaining open.

"If your child is unwell, a common sense approach is encouraged to keep your children at home.

"Supermarkets will remain open and continue to receive and stock.

"It is important that people remain calm when doing their grocery shop and to not bulk purchase essential items," Ms Wicks said.

"Now is the time for us to be mindful that the advice from medical experts and the government is necessary to ensure that we protect ourselves, our loved ones and the wider community from the spread of coronavirus," she said.

"It is vital for those within the community to stay at home if feeling unwell.

"Our focus is on the health and wellbeing of Australians and their livelihoods."
