As with other respiratory illnesses, some people infected with coronavirus disease may experience mild symptoms and will recover easily, and others may become very ill and need urgent medical care.

Symptoms of COVID-19 can include:

  • fever (a temperature of 37.5˚C or higher) or chills
  • cough
  • loss of taste or smell
  • sore throat
  • tiredness (fatigue)
  • runny or blocked nose
  • shortness of breath (difficulty breathing)
  • nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea
  • headache
  • muscle or joint pain
  • loss of appetite

For some people, it can be more severe and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties and can even be fatal. Call 000 if you need urgent medical help.

If you or someone you know has tested positive through a Rapid antigen Test (RAT) or PCR test, we recommend following the SA Health directions.

Once you have registered the positive test with the SA Government, please contact DLI’s COVID Action Team immediately on 08 8132 5400 so we can take the appropriate actions.
