Coronavirus (COVID-19) frequently asked questions

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. In late 2019 a new coronavirus infection started infecting humans in Wuhan, China. This infection has spread to many countries across the world causing millions of people to become sick and a significant number of deaths.
Fever, cough, loss of taste or smell, runny nose, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath. It can take up to 14 days for symptoms to show after a person has been infected. Other reported symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting, muscle and joint pain, loss of appetite.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, have travelled overseas or from a government declared hotspot in the past 14 days, been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or work in a vulnerable setting (i.e. healthcare) , it’s important you see a doctor immediately. Please phone our Respiratory Clinic on 3029 6527 to speak with one of our staff members. If you have serious symptoms, call triple zero (000) immediately and tell the call handler and the paramedics on arrival of possible COVID-19 infection.  
  • Wash your hands frequently (using soap and water or hand sanitiser)
  • Avoid touching your face especially mouth, nose and eyes
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue
  • Dispose of tissues immediately and wash hands after
  • Generally keep 1.5 metres distance between yourself and others.
Keeping distance from others is important to protect the people in our community who are most at risk. This includes:
  • Keeping 1.5 metres away from others as much as possible
  • Avoiding physical contact with others
  • Working from home if you can
  • Staying home.
