Addressing The Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Yesterday, the World Health Organisation (WHO), declared COVID-19 a pandemic.We wanted to touch base and address our community on the precautions, health and safety practices we are implementing to minimise the risks at Middle Park Osteo.

Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of patients, practitioners and staff.

We ask both patients and staff to reconsider your need for treatment at the present moment if:


– You have recently returned from overseas, especially from countries classified as High Risk by the Australian Government and World Health Organisation (WHO).  These countries currently include South Korea, China, Iran, Italy, Mongolia, Japan.

– You are feeling unwell and experiencing flu like symptoms.

– You have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Please seek medical advice if you fall into any of the above categories.

Our hygiene procedures at the clinic include:

– All staff and practitioners will continue to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before and after eating, after using bathroom facilities, before and after each patient, and when returning to and from the clinic.

– Hand sanitiser has been placed in our waiting area, and all treatment rooms and is encouraged to be used by all upon entering and leaving the clinic.

– In addition to our normal daily cleaning routine, at both the start and end of every shift we will disinfect items, including, but not limited to, the HICAPS/eftpos machine, phones, pens, keyboards and mouse, reception and treatment room desks and chairs, waiting area, door handles, light switches, bathroom and toilet. Treatment head-rests will be disinfected after each patient.

Ten Ways to Reduce Your Risk of Coronavirus

– Wash hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or hand dryer.

– Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.

– Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.

– Isolate yourself at home if you feel sick. If you take medication ensure you have adequate supplies.

– Phone your GP first if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do.

– Continue healthy habits: exercise, drink water, get plenty of sleep, and now is the time to quit smoking. Call the Quitline 137 848.

– Don’t wear a face mask if you are well.

– Buy an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with over 60 per cent alcohol.

– Get the flu shot (available April).

Shaking hands is optional!
