Yura Yungi should be congratulated for taking the Local Lead Role very early during the COVID-19 Epidemic.

On a local level they have been without a doubt the leader. The pro-active activities they were involved in and they are still playing a major role in are:

  • Community Education daily on what COVID-19 is and what to do should they develop symptoms (our team is rostered to reach out to the different sections of our community)
  • Health promotion messages on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 around social distancing, hand hygiene, coughing and sneezing into their elbow area
  • We have had to multi-task to provide a culturally appropriate response to COVID-19 whilst maintain the delivery of our core primary health care services
  • YY has played a leading role to ensure government responses were tailored to the needs of our community and to engage respectfully and sensitively with our community
  • YY is represented on the Incident Report Group (HC Shire, Police, Housing CPFS, Hospital) which has been set up specifically to develop local solutions and to establish a culturally appropriate coordinated response to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Joint approach with YY, Halls Creek hospital and HC Police to develop appropriate processes to strengthen work practices
  • Advocating for funding from Govt to purchase basic infrastructure and emergency relief packs to support people who have gone back out to country to keep safe
