COVID-19 Update

We hope all NSW Mob are doing ok!!
Unfortunately due to NSW lockdown announcement today for the next 7 days AWAHS will operate as follows:
💉 All COVID-19 Vaccine appointments will go ahead as scheduled. You will be contacted via phone before your appointment to confirm your attendance and to let you know of our current proceedings.
🚌 Transport will be suspended until further notice. If you have a specialist appointment which we would usually provide transport for please contact reception to arrange another alternative.
📞 Face-to-face appointments will still occur unless deemed otherwise during our confirmation process with our admin staff. Phone consults are preferred to minimise the traffic through the service.
🤒 There will be a triage table set up for our communities safety, please do not enter the building until you have seen a health worker at this desk.
🧑🏽‍⚕️ Our medical staff will be wearing PPE gear, this is to keep AWAHS employee’s and community members safe.
😷 We ask all clients continue doing the right thing by wearing a mask, sanitising hands and staying at home unless absolutely necessary.
❤️ If you or anyone you know needs support during this time our duty officer and social emotional well-being staff are here to help.
📢 We will continue to update community with the latest news as we receive it.

🤙🏽 Stay home, stay safe & stay deadly
 
Our brother boy Johnny Murray has an important message to community about staying home. 🏠 ✊🏾
