Coronavirus Management at Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic

16 March 2020

As a health orientated business we are obviously taking the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation very seriously. The health and safety of our patients and staff is of upmost importance and we are following Government health recommendations.

 

Taking into consideration the information and advice from health authorities, along with the fact that much of our work here is done in enclosed spaces and includes close contact, often touch, we have chosen to put certain measures in place to limit the risk of exposure.
