Mask Recommendations and Respiratory Symptom Policy
It is the policy of Arkaba Medical Centre to provide best practice infection control standards to protect patients, doctors, staff and members of the public at higher risk of Covid-19.
As such, it is strongly recommended that patients wear a mask while attending Arkaba Medical Centre, and that doctors wear surgical masks while in the clinic.
It is a requirement that staff or visitors entering the clinic in a working capacity wear a mask while in the clinic, unless they have a medical exemption.
It is the policy of Arkaba Medical Centre that patients presenting with respiratory symptoms are not permitted to enter the clinic unless they have had a negative Covid-19 PCR within the last 5 days. A negative RAT will not be accepted.
Patients presenting with respiratory symptoms are encouraged to attend the Adelaide Central Respiratory Clinic for assessment and testing.
Visitors attending the clinic in a working capacity, who present with respiratory symptoms, are not permitted to enter the clinic until they return a negative RAT, as observed by an Arkaba Medical Centre clinic nurse.
