Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has been confirmed in Queensland.
DO NOT BOOK an appointment if you think you may have it.

We do not have the equipment to test for it.
We do not have the equipment to prevent spread to other patients or staff.

Public Health have given contradictory messages, but GPs are not employees, we are small business, and we can't afford unpaid sick leave.

If staff are in contact with a confirmed case for more than 15 mins (ie a standard consultation), they need to self-quarantine for 14 days. Some research suggest spread could occur with in 15 seconds.

Please call your local hospital for advice. Many are setting up 'Fever Clinics'.
Please do not risk spreading it to us or other patients.
