lessening the burden for people affected by cancer.

#yourpower to reduce energy consumption

Ross River Virus warning - protect against mosquitoes
Hawkesbury City Council is urging people to protect themselves from mosquitoes following a seven fold increase in
detection of the mosquito-borne virus Ross River Fever across the State compared with this time last year.
The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Kim Ford said the next few weeks will be ideal breeding conditions for mosquitoes
carrying these types of viruses.
“It’s important to protect against mosquito bites on a day to day basis at home and at work, if you work outside, but also
when going on holidays,” Councillor Ford said.
“People will be getting out and about in the outdoors during the Easter break and over the school holidays.
“It is particularly important for people planning to take trips during the Easter holidays to be prepared with measures to
prevent mosquito bites by covering up as much as possible with light-coloured, loose-fitting clothing, covered footwear and
use repellent, particularly during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.”
NSW Health is urging people to take extra precautions to protect themselves against mosquitoes following this huge jump
in Ross River Virus detection.
Director of Communicable Diseases Dr Vicky Sheppeard said it’s the second time this year that NSW Health has issued a
warning about mosquito-borne illnesses.
“Autumn is the peak time of the year for these insects to carry such infections so it is also when there is the highest
number of mosquito-borne viral infections,” she said.
“So far this year, NSW Health has seen an increase in reporting of people infected by mosquito-borne viruses.
“There have been 539 notifications of Ross River virus infections across the State compared with just 79 for the same
period in 2014.
“While all parts of the State have reported cases, residents of the North Coast of NSW have been particularly affected.
“NSW Health’s Arbovirus Monitoring Program has recently detected Ross River Virus and Barmah Forest Virus in
mosquitoes in Sydney, including around the Georges River, the Homebush and Hawkesbury areas, as well as a number
of other parts of the State.
“These infections can cause symptoms including tiredness, rash, fever, and sore and swollen joints. The symptoms
usually resolve after several days, but some people may experience these symptoms for weeks or even months.
“There is no specific treatment for these viruses. The best way to avoid infection is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
“It is possible that these mosquitoes will be carrying the even more serious viruses such as Kunjin and Murray Valley
Encephalitis,” she said.
“Our mosquito surveillance has found increasing numbers of mosquitoes in many parts of the State. Even more are
predicted as a result of high tides together with the recent heavy rains in parts of NSW.”
18
Simple steps to avoid mosquito bites include:
 Avoid being outside unprotected, particularly during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most
active.
 When outside cover up as much as possible with light-coloured, loose-fitting clothing and covered
footwear.
 Apply mosquito repellent regularly to exposed areas (as directed on the container). Repellents
containing Diethyl Toluamide (DEET) or Picaridin are best.
 Don’t use repellents on the skin of children under the age of three months. Instead use physical
barriers such as netting on prams, cots and play areas for babies.
 When camping, use flyscreens, or sleep under mosquito nets.
 Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by getting rid of items that
hold water or by emptying the containers.
 Repair damaged flyscreens on windows and doors and seal any gaps between doors and
windows.

A musical experience commemorating 100 years of ANZAC pride
A star-studded line-up of Australia’s finest musical and performing talents will take to the stage
to tell the stories of Australians at war, in SPIRIT OF THE ANZACS – The Arena Tour. This
unforgettable event commemorates 100 years of ANZAC pride from the ANZAC’s landing at
Gallipoli in 1915 through to the deserts of the war in Afghanistan.
Screen legend Jack Thompson, multi-Gold Logie winner Lisa McCune, country music
superstar Lee Kernaghan OAM and Redgum’s John Schumann head the stellar cast that will
take us on a musical and theatrical journey based on the true and personal stories of those
serving abroad and their loved ones at home.
SPIRIT OF THE ANZACS – The Arena Tour is a compelling stage event for every Australian
and New Zealander to experience. It is a theatrical production based on the human side of our
history at war as told by the men and women who were there. These remarkable tales,
sourced from the archives of personal letters, diaries and stories held at the Australian War
Memorial, chronicle the entire spectrum of the experience of Australians at war over the past
100 years - from the trenches of the Western Front to the bombing of Darwin, the hardships of
the Kokoda trail to the courage of Long Tan, and all the way to the dust of Uruzgan Province in
Afghanistan.
Each powerful and inspiring story in this unique and emotional production is brought to life
through stirring songs, narrated tales and powerful screen images. These are the true stories
of real people who through their words are also representing thousands of others who were
there with them sharing the same experiences and feeling the same emotions.
SPIRIT OF THE ANZACS – The Arena Tour has been inspired by the songs from Lee
Kernaghan’s new album of the same name. This remarkable 16 song recording also includes
some very special guest artists performing songs written by Kernaghan, Colin Buchanan and
producer Garth Porter.
The all-star cast of actors and singers, supported by an 11-piece band and vocal group, will
perform all the songs from the Spirit of the ANZACS album including Song for Grace, To The
Top Of The Hill, When the First Bombs Fell, Being Your Sons in addition to some other
Australian classic songs.
Utilising the latest state-of-the-art production techniques, a giant screen behind the stage will
present a visual backdrop to the songs and stories through a dramatic range of images,
showing the real-life drama of an extraordinary history of courage, bravery, hope and love by
the men and women who served their nation in the line of duty.
SPIRIT OF THE ANZACS – The Arena Tour goes to the heart of who we are, offering a
special tribute to those who gave their lives, those who have served, those that have returned
unseen, and those who still today step bravely into the unknown to serve our country.
