The Department of Health has issued a health alert regarding the Novel-Coronavirus.
WHRIA is open and is adhering to strict NSW health guidelines to prevent COVID-19 spread. Phone or video consults are preferred at this time.
Everyone must practice good hygiene to protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading. If you feel well, you do not need to wear a mask.
One way to slow the spread of viruses is social distancing. For example:
If you have returned from overseas YOU MUST SELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS (as of Sunday 15th March).
If you feel unwell (like a cold, cough, fever or fatigue) please reschedule your appointment at WHRIA. A mask can help prevent the spread, but it is best to self-isolate.
If you are pregnant, please see this video by RANZCOG president Dr Vijay Roach
If you have returned from international travel or have had contact a person with confirmed or suspected coronavirus please contact the clinic to reschedule your appointment. YOU MUST SELF-ISOLATE FOR 14 DAYS.
