Coronavirus (COVID-19) – What you need to know
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others particularly those Cancer patients or other chronic health conditions. We recommend that you take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing and avoid handshakes or other contact.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention BUT call your GP in advance. The GP may refer you to the COVID -19 clinic at Gosford or Wyong Hospital for screening but you must ring ahead and make an appointment. Gosford 43205055 or Wyong 43949200
Why? Your GP will be able to determine the best course of action for you. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
General public Surgical masks in the community are only helpful in preventing people who have coronavirus disease from spreading it to others. If you are well, you do not need to wear a surgical mask as there is little evidence supporting the widespread use of surgical masks in healthy people to prevent transmission in public.
General Recommendations to Patients.
If you are healthy and have not been recently returned from overseas or been in contact with people with flu like symptoms, then you may continue to attend your physiotherapy appointments. If you feel that you are at risk or feeling unsure than please phone ahead to discuss your needs.
If you are on immune suppressant therapy like Chemotherapy or other immune suppressant drugs it is recommended that you try and minimise social contact outside of your home. Currently, we are temporarily suspending outpatient apppointments to ensure your safety. We are hoping to be able to provide telehealth consultations in the near future and resume normal outpatients once we are cleared to do so.
Thank you for understanding during this current environment.
