Title
COVID-19 healthy lifestyle education campaign
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council
that the current public health messaging relating to COVID-19 is too limited. It does not consider what Victorians can do to support their health and immune systems to help reduce their risk of contracting the virus.

The vaccine and treatment are part of the solution, but adopting healthy lifestyle practices must also be part of the solution. Lifestyle practices that could be promoted and adopted may include a healthy diet, exercise and other self-care or stress reduction practices to optimise health and wellbeing.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to invest in a public health campaign to educate Victorians on the lifestyle measures they can adopt to not only reduce their risk of contracting COVID-19, but to also give them the best chance of recovery if they do contract the virus.
