These programs have been made to help Yolŋu, and organisations working with Yolŋu, to learn about Coronavirus (‘Covid-19’). We hope they help Yolŋu make sense of the complex and confusing stories about coronavirus.
These stories explain what coronavirus is, and what Yolŋu can do to protect themselves and their families. Yolŋu can control this virus instead of letting it control them. Some stories talk about the new rules Government has made to control that virus. Other stories talk about some of the changes in our lives at this time.
Some of these stories are changing all the time. We will update these stories when things change. We will take down any resources that become an ‘old’ story, and put them back on here when we have added the new information.
If you have a question about Covid-19, please call 1800 899 769. This is a free call. We will do our best to answer any questions you have.
