Stay COVID Safe for the School Holidays
Friday, 26 June 2020 / Albury Wodonga Health
Update from AWH Executive Director Pandemic Response Sally Squire:
AWH is urging all residents and visitors to the area during the school holiday period to remember the public health messages and maintain their vigilance against COVID-19.
Ms Squire commends the community for the results we have achieved so far and reminds all that we don't want the hard work to be undone during the school holiday period which is why it is so important that we maintain our social distancing and hand washing regime.
It has been 90 days since Albury Wodonga Health recorded a positive case of COVID-19. With the evidence of community transmission within Victoria we ask our community not to become complacent.
The Albury Wodonga Health COVID-19 clinic remains open and is available to residents and visitors displaying symptoms. Access to the clinic is made by contacting AWH on (02) 60584444 and following the prompts to the screening clinic. The staff will assess and advise individuals if they should be tested. This service is available to all border residents and people visiting the region.
The symptoms include:
- Fever, chills or sweats
- Sore Throat
- Runny Nose
- Shortness of Breath
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
In response to COVID-19, AWH continues to have a strict visiting policy with restricted visiting hours. Patients will be asked to identify one nominated visitor only for the duration of their stay. This is our first line of defense to protect our patients, staff and broader community.
We thank our community for working with us to keep our region safe.
