COVID19 Updates - 9th July 2021

We have a Covid19 Safety Plan and are committed to keeping you safe.  We must all play our part in this ongoing ‘Covid-way’ of living safely together.

The NSW Government has again reviewed the “Stay at Home” orders.  New rules and restrictions apply to people who live in, usually work in, or usually attend a university or other tertiary education facility in Greater Sydney. Additional restrictions will also apply across the rest of NSW to protect the community from COVID-19.

They have given four reasons that are acceptable to leave home;
  • Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
  • Medical care or compassionate needs;
  • Exercise outdoors in groups of 2 or fewer;
  • Essential work, or education, where you cannot work or study from home.

As AHPRA Registered Acupuncturists and Doctors of Chinese Medicine, Osteopaths and other allied therapists we are following all NSW Health Guidelines and continue to serve our community through these challenging times and we will remain open this week.

Please check this link to see the LATEST COVID CASE LOCATIONS AND ALERTS IN NSW and please follow NSW Health Guidelines at all times.

Rest assured that all our practitioners have completed Infection Control Training and in addition to our usual hygiene practices, we will continue to enforce increased vigilant hygiene recommendations set out by the Australian Government Guidelines of Health and adhere to social distancing advice with modifications to the waiting room and patient flow.  Our practitioners are all wearing medical masks and we ask that, in accordance with the NSW Health Guidelines, you too also wear a mask whilst in the clinic at this time.  If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.

The safety of our patients, your families and our practitioners’ health are our highest priority so if you begin to feel unwell please get tested, stay at home and self isolate until you receive your result and rest, we understand.

With the rapidly changing response to COVID-19, we will keep you updated on any ongoing changes happening within the clinic.

These are challenging times.  We stand ready to help you.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your practitioner or reception on 0403 273 008.

Sending you strength, peace and good health.

Take care and let’s take this day by day.
