It can be very difficult to distinguish between the symptoms of COVID-19, influenza, a cold and allergies. The Australian Government has put together a symptom chart to help determine the type of illness.

If you have any infectious or respiratory symptoms (such as a sore throat, headache, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches, cough or runny nose) you should self-isolate and be assessed by a medical professional.

If you would like help navigating what steps you need to take if you have any of the above symptoms, our team of qualified nurses can provide information and assistance at any time of day or night. If you have any questions or need extra support, we're here to help you anytime in any language. Simply start a chat with us via the home screen of the Sonder app.

You can also call reach us on 1800 234 560 in Australia or +64 (0) 9887 9851 in New Zealand if you don't have the Sonder app downloaded.
