CORONAVIRUS

CORONAVIRUS

Please note that our Practice DOES NOT provide corona-virus testing!

However if you would like further information please call the clinic and speak to one of our staff members.

Masks

Please note that it is compulsory that you wear a mask to the clinic. If you do not have one you can not come in. We do not provide them, as the government has not sent out any masks that we can supply to our patients. However if you do require masks we do believe that the Reservoir Newsagent across the road from us does have stock  as well as My Chemist.

What if my coronavirus (COVID-19) test was negative?

If you are unwell, and your coronavirus (COVID-19) test was negative, you should still isolate at home until your symptoms have completely gone. Taking this precaution will stop you passing any illness on to others. However if you need medical attention please call the clinic and organize a tele-health appointment with your doctor.

Who is required to quarantine?

The following groups are required to quarantine

  • international travelers – please see international travelers section on this website
  • people living with a diagnosed person
  • people who have come into close contact with a person who is confirmed to have coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • People who have been advised by the Department of Health and Human Services that they have been exposed to an ‘exposure site’.

If you have serious symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, call triple zero (000) and ask for an ambulance. You should disclose any recent contact with a person confirmed to have coronavirus (COVID-19).

If, at the end of 14 days, you are unwell with respiratory symptoms, you must continue to stay in quarantine. Call the dedicated coronavirus (COVID-19) hotline on 1800 675 398 (24 hours, 7 days a week) to find out what you should do next.
