Victoria is experiencing a new COVID wave due to the highly infectious B1.4 and BA.5 variants.
The Victorian Department of Health has issued six steps to help protect yourself from COVID and stay well this winter.
Some Victorians are now eligible for their fourth booster shot; this applies to:
Staying up to date with vaccination is your best protection against severe illness from COVID.

Wearing a well-fitted mask is strongly recommended this winter to combat the new COVID wave.
High-quality masks like N95s and P2s are most effective in preventing COVID transmission. Cloth masks more than halve your risk of infection, and surgical masks reduce the risk by 66%.
You are less likely to catch COVID in places that are well ventilated. Open windows and doors, use fans and air purifiers and met with people outdoors rather than indoors to maintain good ventilation.
Medications are available to eligible Victorians at risk of severe illness due to COVID-19, including those who are:
Contact your GP if you test positive and believe you may be at risk of severe illness.
The Victorian Department of Health urges those who can work from home to do so.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a sore throat, cough, body aches or fever, you must get tested for COVID and stay home until symptoms go away.
The immunity period for COVID has been shortened from 12 to four weeks.
If you experience flu-like symptoms or are in close contact with a positive case, you must get tested at a PCR testing site or via Rapid Antigen Test.
