This document from NSW Health, updated in November 2021, discusses the measures to mitigate COVID-19 transmission in residential buildings. It advises residents to maintain hygiene by washing hands after touching common surfaces, covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, avoiding close contact with symptomatic individuals, refraining from touching the face or shaking hands, maintaining social distance, avoiding gathering in large groups in common areas, and wearing masks in indoor communal areas. For strata managers and body corporates, the guidance recommends regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces in common areas and provision of hand sanitizer for residents. Despite the importance of cleanliness, the document stresses that the risk of transmission from a contaminated surface is lower compared to close contact with a COVID-19 case.
