COVID-19 Update: Friday, 19th November 2021
As of Tuesday, 23rd November 2021, South Australia will be opening its borders to interstate travellers.
While this is exciting news for the prospect of reuniting with family/friends and for South Australian tourism, there are precautions that we, as a medical clinic, need to take in order to keep our staff, patients and the community safe.
First, we remind you to follow SA Health guidelines, which are updated regularly in concurrence with the impact of COVID-19 in our community.
The Arkaba Medical Centre is making strict changes to our policy and procedures to ensure our patients and our staff are safe.
Effective Tuesday, 23rd November 2021, our staff will be wearing full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), including N95 mask and face shield.
Patients will be required to check in with the staff member manning the front entrance before checking in with the front desk to ensure that persons entering the clinic are not experiencing cold/flu symptoms or symptoms of cough, sore throat, fever, or runny nose.
You will be unable to enter the clinic unless you have an appointment.
Effective immediately, online bookings will be disabled for in-person appointments; appointments will need to be made by calling the Patient Concierge team on 8373 0888. Telehealth appointments are still eligible for online booking.
These policies will be in place until further notice.
We are a large, busy practice and extended wait times may occur at reception during this time.
We thank you for your understanding and patience during this transition.
