    I ask everyone to check on your friends and neighbours to ensure everyone has enough food/medications and to support each other thru this challenging time.

    First and foremost, with COVID-19 Queensland Health are asking you not to panic and to just implement good social distancing and hygiene.

    The Millaa Millaa Primary Health Centre is still open and to assist the community in social distancing the clinic doors are now locked. The clinic nurse will still be available, but we ask you to:

    1. Knock on the door and I will assess you first

    2. Call ahead before coming if possible

    3. Limit the amount of people you bring to the clinic.

    This is a simple, powerful, and effective tactic to control disease transmission alongside testing to identify sick patients and isolate them from others.

    Taking these drastic measures to limit the transmission rate of Covid-19, may seem like an overreaction however, such measures are most important.

    We appreciate your assistance regarding this important matter and updates can be accessed from Queensland Health website www.health.qld.gov.au has clear information and Frequently Asked Questions on Covid-19.

    You can also call 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84) however we’ve heard there can be delays in speaking to a nurse.

    If you have travelled overseas in the past 14 days or been in contact with someone with Covid-19 and begin to exhibit any symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, and breathing difficulties, then you should call ahead to your GP or visit your local Emergency Department.

    All testing is to be done at the hospital or with your GP.

    Please ensure you all avoid being around many people and adhere to good hygiene measures and eat well and please support each other in these very challenging changing times.
