“NO CORONA VIRUS IN MT. BEAUTY – AS FAR AS WE KNOW.
Winter approaching can mean colds and flu will become more common. We REALLY need to know if what you are experiencing is a common cold, flu or corona virus. If you develop a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or achy body symptoms, please ring the Medical Centre or the hospital (on the weekends) to discuss an EARLY corona virus test. This may be done by ‘drive through’ testing at Wodonga hospital or for those who can’t get there easily there are limited testing facilities at the Mount Beauty Hospital. If you become very unwell and we know that you DO NOT have corona virus, we can look after you at Mount Beauty Hospital without comprimising the staff and aged care residents. SO – keep doing all the right things and remember, talk to us EARLY if you have any of the above respiratory symptoms.”
