    Coronavirus – what you need to know

    Coronavirus – what you need to know

    We all need to work together to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. To protect those most at risk and to slow the rate of community transmission – non-essential organised gatherings should be kept to fewer than 500 people. 

    People who have returned from anywhere overseas are required to self-isolate for 14 days. During this time, you should monitor your health closely. If you develop symptoms including a fever and cough, you should seek medical attention, remembering to call ahead.

    People who have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus should also monitor their health and seek medical advice.

    From 18 March 2020, all Australians are advised not to travel overseas. Go to www.smartraveller.gov.au for further information

     For Department of Health information on Coronavirus (Covid-19) published 17 March 2020, click the Read more link below to find out who is most at risk, what to do if you develop symptoms, if you should wear a mask – who needs to be isolated and what home isolation means. There is also advice on how to prevent the spread of the virus.

    Please note: If you feel you may have been in contact with the virus and you develop symptoms you must first call either our practice or contact the Moruya or Batemans Bay District Hospitals for professional advice on what you should do to minimise risks to yourself and others.  

    New COVID-19 clinics have been established in our region by our Southern NSW Local Health District – see the news post on our Home Page.

    Avoiding dehydration – a risk for babies and children in hot weather

Dehydration happens when your body loses more fluid than it’s been taking in. Kate, who holds qualifications and experience in paediatric nursing,  is keen for parents and carers to be aware that infants and children are at greater risk of becoming dehydrated. See Kate’s article and download The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne fact sheet.
