Whilst there are no mandatory isolation requirements for those who have tested positive for Covid, NSW Health still strongly recommends that you remain at home if you have tested positive, have active symptoms or have any other flu like/respiratory symptoms.
To maintain the safety and health of our patients, teams, doctors and their families, Highlands GP is asking patients to please adhere to the practices’ precautionary measures which include:
- Wearing a mask inside the practice at all times.
- Answering covid and respiratory symptom screening questions from both Reception and clinical team members.
- Refraining from entering the practice if you have any flu like/respiratory symptoms.
Covid Oral antiviral treatments are now available through the PBS (Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme) to help treat Covid illness for eligible patients.
There are two antiviral treatments available and the most appropriate treatment for you will depend on your medical history and current medications.
If you receive a positive Covid test we would encourage you to make a Telehealth appointment with your doctor as soon as possible, to determine the most appropriate treatment for you.
