Doctors say if eight-out-of-10 people in the Eurobodalla Shire can stay home, we have a chance of containing COVID-19.
Even then, it will take our shire about 12 weeks to come through.
The alternative is unthinkable.
Our doctors, nurses and aged care workers cannot stay home.
This virus has killed more than 30 doctors in Italy.
Who will help you and yours if our health workers fall?
We have no intensive care beds in the Eurobodalla Shire.
The chronic lack of resourcing for regional health has come home to roost.
Please tell everyone you know to stay home if they possibly can.
Tell prospective visitors not to come and if they are here, to go home where they have a chance of securing an intensive care bed.
Don't just flatten the curve, stay ahead of it: sign up for our morning and afternoon coronavirus updates here.
