From November 23, 2021, the South Australian borders will be open to all fully vaccinated people throughout Australia. There will still be restrictions on most activities and we will continue to wear surgical masks within all health care settings.

We expect to see COVID-19 enter the South Australian community and this may mean we will have to convert your appointment to a telehealth consultation.

To maximise your safety in our health care setting we request that you wear a surgical mask to your appointment. If you do not have a surgical mask we will provide you with one but please wear your material/cloth mask when entering the practice.

PLEASE stay home and get tested for COVID-19 if you have any respiratory symptoms (including children), no matter how mild, as soon as possible. Please note if you have any symptoms, such as sore throat, cough, fever, runny nose, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell, we will require a negative COVID-19 test that is less than 72 hours old before we can see you face to face.

To uphold safe social distancing, we ask that patients do not bring friends, family members, or carers to their appointment unless necessary.

We are giving people the option to wait in our waiting room, outside, or in their car. We do require unvaccinated people (including unvaccinated children) to wait in their car, for their protection. Please present to the reception in the first instance unless you have respiratory symptoms.
