Clinic Remains Open – Important Information COVID-19 Course Completion

Dear Patients

For your piece of mind, we are following strict protocols for infection prevention and have completed the Government course for Health Care Providers on COVID-19 Certificate of Compliance. We remain open as an essential health service.

Hand washing, hand sanitising ( hand rubbing) and covering your mouth when sneezing or coughing are still the key methods to prevent transmission. We have supplied hand sanitiser at the front desk to be used. Our Chiropractors are using alcohol wipes and sprays on our treatment table and door handles after each patient and use a new set of gloves on each patient.

Here is the World Health Organisation method for handwashing and hand rubbing

The key symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, sore throat, shortness of breath and fatigue. These symptoms do not mean you have COVID-19.  However, if you develop symptoms, the Government advice is as follows

  1. Stay at home and practice standard infection control measures
  2. Seek medical advice, it is important to call ahead first:
  • Go to healthdirect.gov.au or
  • Call the National Coronavirus Information and Triage Line (1800 020 080) or
  • Call your usual care provider

To stay informed please go to https://www.health.gov.au/

Wearing a facemask in public won’t help to protect you from infection • Only wear a mask if you are sick with symptoms that might be due to COVID-19 (especially coughing) or looking after someone who may have COVID-19 • There is a shortage of masks and we need to save them for use when they are needed for sick people or for those looking after them.

Our additional advice:  Be kind and do everything to support your immune system and those you love. X
