Am I more at risk now that social distancing rules have relaxed?
It is normal to feel anxious and concerned about what easing restrictions will mean for you. Your treatment team will be able to give you the best advice for you however, if you have a compromised immune system, it is likely your treatment team will recommend that you need to continue to self-isolate as much as possible to keep yourself safe.
If your treating team inform you that you do not need to continue self-isolating, following the government’s recommendations will still be essential in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We also recommend everyone downloads the COVIDSafe app.
If you need practical support or assistance during this time, you can call our 13 11 20 information and support line. Or you may like to discuss your concerns in our Cancer and COVID-19 forum, here in the Online Community.
