In light of the recent federal and state government announcements regarding the closure of non-essential businesses we wanted to notify our patients that as a primary health care service, we are an essential business and will remain open until otherwise informed.
We receive daily updates from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Australian Chiropractic Association. As such we take infectious disease control very seriously and are doing all that we can to make our clinic as safe as possible including, making hand sanitiser available in our reception area for all patients, regularly wiping down all surfaces including our reception and treatment areas and employing physical distancing in our waiting area. We also ask that all patients undertake physical distancing, good hygiene practices and be aware of the COVID-19 symptoms which include:
- A fever with or without acute respiratory symptoms
- Acute respiratory symptoms include a dry cough, shortness of breathe, difficulty breathing.
Those at risk are patients who have travelled internationally in the last 14 days before the onset of symptoms or, who have had close contact in the last 14 days before the onset of symptoms with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
If patients fit this profile they need to be tested for COVID-19 and call the health department on 1300 651 160.
We therefore kindly ask that any patients who fit the case profile above with appointments at the clinic, to call and notify our reception staff to reschedule their appointment and then seek medical attention. We thank you for your understanding in these interesting times.
