COVID-19 update – 20 January 2021

20 January 2021


Stay vigilant

Staff working in primary care are at risk.

To stay safe we recommend you:

  • maintain social distancing
  • use masks for staff and patients
  • use triage and telehealth wisely

Order your masks using our online mask ordering system.

Testing is key

If we want to eradicate COVID, we must find every single person who has the virus. Current testing numbers are too low to ensure this happens. 

Refer for testing: 

  • Anyone with respiratory symptoms no matter how mild
  • Or any other symptoms consistent with COVID-19
