Young people aged 18 – 35 years have the highest rate of COVID-19 infection. They’re busy, social people who may not be engaged with our usual communications channels. Although most young people who get COVID-19 won’t become seriously unwell, they may easily spread it to family, friends and workmates.
It’s important that more people in this age group are tested.
NSWHealth is encouraging young people to get tested through filming and posting social media content with the hashtag #Itest4NSW answering the question “Why did you get tested?”. NSWHealth is asking partner organisations to spread the word.
