Melbourne Podiatrists & Orthotics wish to provide a safe environment for our patients and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak. We also wish to be proactive in helping to stop the spread of the virus so we have introduced the following policies for all patients:
1. If you are experiencing a fever, a cough, a sore throat, shortness of breath or flu-like symptoms we ask that you refrain from making an appointment. You should seek medical attention and get tested. For more information call the Victorian coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
2. If you have recently come into close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus we ask that you do not attend MPAO for 14 days. Please call the information hotline 1800 675 398 for advice and closely monitor your health.
3. If you are currently undergoing testing for coronavirus we ask that you do not attend MPAO. The department of health advises you to remain at home and self-isolate until you get results.
4. If you have recently travelled from overseas you cannot attend MPAO for 14 days. The government requires anyone arriving in Australia from overseas to self-isolate for 14 days. This applies to all travellers and Australian citizens.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and thank you for your respect in the interest of public safety during this outbreak.
Please call our reception team on 9882 5584 should you have any queries.
