Please note that while regulations arounds the wearing of masks were relaxed in Victoria in early December, we continue to request that all patients entering our medical centres, aged 12 years of age and over, wear a face mask.

Please advise our staff if you have a diagnosed medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Wearing a face mask helps keep you and others safe. COVID-19 is spread from close contact with an infected person and can be spread when a person coughs or sneezes.

Other ways to protect yourself and others from contracting coronavirus (COVID-19) is keeping 1.5 metres apart, washing your hands often, and coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue. Face masks add an additional protective physical barrier.

 Safe mask habits:  

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before and after touching your mask
  • Never use a dirty or damaged mask
  • Check your mask does not have holes or a valve*
  • Make sure your mask covers your mouth, nose and chin, and that there are no gaps on the sides
  • Avoid touching your mask while you are wearing it
  • Take care when you take your mask off – unhook it from your ears and pull it away from your face
  • Wash reusable fabric masks in hot, soapy water after each use
  • Put your disposable mask straight in the rubbish bin after you take it off.
  • Wash your hands after removing the mask.

* Masks with valves only filter air going in, so they only protect you and not others.
