Symptoms of COVID-19

COVID-19 symptoms are similar to influenza. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, sore throat, coughing, fatigue, and shortness of breath. The elderly, immune compromised individuals, Indigenous populations and those with chronic medical conditions are more at risk of developing serious complications.

COVID-19 is easily transmitted through close contact with an infectious person. You can help to slow the spread of this coronavirus in our community by:

  • Practicing good hygiene by regular and thorough washing of hands, disinfecting surfaces and frequently used objects, and disposing of potential sources of contagion (eg. used tissues)
  • Social distancing – this includes avoiding direct contact with others and staying more than 1.5 metres away from people

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolation is recommended for 14 days, to avoid the spread of the virus.

Please be patient when you are attempting to contact the Practice. Staff are dealing with an unprecedent number of enquiries. Many thanks for your patience.
