June 2022

COVID-19, influenza and gastroenteritis are all moving around our communities, causing significant personal and workplace impacts. Information from the health department suggests we should expect this to be the case throughout the coming months, so please continue to be vigilant about protecting yourself and your loved ones.

At MTHCS, we are coping the best we can, but it may be necessary for us to scale back some services as these infections are affecting both staff and community members. Services affected may include allied health and childcare. If services you use are affected, please continue to be patient and kind. We are all working to do the best we can in difficult circumstances.

Remember, basic Infection control measures such as regularly washing hands, using hand sanitiser and wearing face masks can be very effective in protecting you from COVID-19, influenza and gastroenteritis.   . While we understand people may be reluctant to cancel appointments, especially for services in high demand, we are asking people to stay at home if they are COVID -19 positive and phone us to reschedule.


Good vaccine supply: Our medical clinics currently have good supplies of vaccines for both COVID-19 boosters and flu shots, including vaccines for adults and children. Please book in if you need either. There is concern about the low update of COVID-19 vaccines for children across our region, so please consider getting your children vaccinated if eligible. We also have good staffing capacity in our medical clinics at the moment, so it’s a good time to book in.
