What are we doing?
As the COVID-19 situation evolves, our main focus at Spectrum Health is always to ensure our ongoing patient care. Accordingly, we are closely following advice from Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA), Queensland Health and the Australian Department of Health in relation to management and containment. Beyond our normal procedures, we are following the Dept of Health’s “Environmental cleaning and disinfection principles for COVID-19” so as to minimise the risk of infection. We are also observing and enforcing strict social distancing regimes for patients in our clinic.
What can you do?
There are some simple things we can all do to help prevent the infection from spreading:
- Clean your hands regularly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitisers;
- When coughing or sneezing use a tissue or cover your nose and mouth with a bent elbow;
- Avoid touching your face, nose and mouth;
- Avoid shaking hands;
- Stay home unless you have a specific reason;
- Keep at least 1.5m away from others when out in public.
- We also suggest taking natural auto-immunity enhancing medications
If you have a cough or sign of fever or infection, please call our friendly reception team before making an appointment.
