COVID safe practices
at South Coast Medical Service Aboriginal Corporation
To ensure the safety of our staff, our kids, and our community, we are still undertaking precautionary measures to contain and control the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), under the guidelines of the NSW Public Health Unit.
We have resumed essential face-to-face client contact (with phone screening) with the wearing of masks recommended but not mandatory. We will still be screening visitors and clients, including temperature checks for Transport and Clinic appointments.
Anyone with flu-like symptoms must stay home until cleared by test results and symptoms have resolved.
If you have been to any hotspots advised by NSW Health that you are a close contact of a confirmed case you must:
immediately self-isolate until 14 days after you were last there
get tested even if you have no symptoms
watch for COVID-19 symptoms and get retested should any symptoms recur
NOTE: Even if your test results are negative, you must stay in isolation for 14 days (it can take 14 days before you may show symptoms or test positive)
Social distancing measures are still in place which is keeping 1.5m apart at all times.
There is hand sanitiser at the entry of all our locations and we ask that all those entering use it.
Regular cleaning of consult rooms and frequently used surfaces in our building are still in place to help keep our staff, clients, and community safe.
The situation can change quickly, so to stay up to date with the latest information about the spread of COVID-19 and the steps being taken to slow the spread, visit the Department of Health website.
