IMPORTANT

MASK WEARING IS MANDATORY

As per WA Government requirements all people 12 years and over (and non-exempt) in the Great Southern Region will be required to wear a mask in all indoor public settings.

 

We ask that all patients wear an appropriate mask (covering their nose and mouth) before they enter and during their appointment.

 

Unfortunately, we will be unable to supply you with a mask, however if you do not have one you can call to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your co-operation during this time.

If you are experiencing Fever and or Respiratory Symptoms including cough, sore throat, runny nose please call (08) 9848 1410 to discuss with a nurse. DO NOT make an appointment online and DO NOT enter the clinic as it may put vulnerable people at risk.

COVID-19 Testing 

 

It is important to get tested for COVID-19 early – people are most infectious when they first experience symptoms.

 

COVID-19 can cause a range of symptoms. These can range from mild illness to pneumonia. If you experience any of the below symptoms, no matter how mild, please get a COVID-19 test.

 

What are the symptoms and when should I get tested?

Get tested if you have any of the following, no matter how mild:

  • fever of 37.5°C or above OR fever in the last few days (for example, night sweats or chills)

  • coughing, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose

  • loss of smell or taste.

 

What does the test involve?

A swab will be inserted into the back of your throat and then through your nose by a qualified practitioner. This is a fast procedure, lasting less than a minute. It may cause some mild discomfort but is not painful.
