COVID-19 INFECTION

With the increase in number of covid-19 infections and the reduction of time of isolation required post infections additional precautions will be taken at The Western Medical Centre as there is possibility of ongoing viral shedding. 

If you have recently had covid-19 infection all consultations for the first 2 weeks post release from isolation will be telehealth only

This is in line with the Australian Government recommendation to avoid visiting high-risk settings for a further period of time post release from isolation. This is to keep everyone safe. 



COVID-19 INFECTION - REPORTING YOUR RAPID ANTIGEN TEST
If you have had a positive rapid antigen test you no longer require a PCR test.
You can self-record your result with the Victorian Department of Health here
