Coronavirus COVID19 Information

At Oqea Cares incorporating Salvado, your safety is our top priority.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or have concerns about coming to the clinic, please get in touch with us before your appointment, so we can offer a Telehealth appointment, no matter where you are. Contact details are on our home page.

Please also ask to be registered for app – our hyper-secure software that connects you to your doctor, psychologists, allied health professionals and your support (care) team – and more!

Prevention is essential - the most effective way to prevent Coronavirus infection from spreading is to wash your hands with soap and water regularly. We suggest – for 20 seconds (the time it takes to recite the alphabet) – making sure you knit your fingers together and wash your nails and the backs of your hands.

Avoid handshaking and personal contact. Avoid being within a metre of anybody or remaining in a confined space with anyone showing signs of infection.

We advocate wearing facemasks at Oqea Cares Incorporating Salvado before entering our clinic. Face masks are a simple and effective way to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. By wearing a face mask, you can help protect yourself and those around you.

Face masks can stop viruses from spreading in the air when you talk, cough, sneeze and laugh. A well-fitted mask lowers your risk of spreading and catching viruses.
