GRIFFITH ABORIGINAL MEDICAL SERVICE
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The Griffith Aboriginal Medical Service is committed to the health and safety of our clients, staff and the community. In these difficult times we are attempting to allow business to continue as usual, however we have implemented some strict conditions regarding our service delivery. These conditions are in place to minimise the risk to our clients and staff of COVID-19 infection. As you would appreciate our Aboriginal clients and community are highly vulnerable due to chronic health conditions.
We are constantly changing our clinical services with advice from various health departments in response to the needs, health and safety of the community.
When visiting our service we would appreciate that you adhere to the following:
- If you are at low risk of exposure maintain social distancing and good hand hygiene
- If you are at high risk of exposure (been overseas or in close contact with someone with COVID-19) stay at home and call the Griffith Fever Clinic on 1800831099
For people with symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath and tiredness you should self-isolate at home and call the Griffith Fever Clinic.
Acknowledgement of Country
The Griffith Aboriginal Medical Service would like to Acknowledge the Wiradjuri people who are the traditional custodians of this land. We would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present of the Wiradjuri nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people.
