BUSINESS AS (un)USUAL - COVID SAFE CAIRNS ORTHOPAEDIC CLINIC

Borders are opening, and restrictions are easing. Cairns Orthopaedic Clinic is playing our part to help keep the curve flattened by maintaining our CovidSafe Business Plan to its usual high standard.

We ask that patients who can attend an appointment on their own, do so. If you wish to bring a carer, partner or friend to an appointment, please limit it to ONE. Children (are not included in Covid counts) can attend with TWO parents.

Restrictions on the number of people who can sit in our waiting room remain in place;

Please check your SMS reminders on the day of your appointment, if the surgeon is running late, our secretaries will send you an SMS with a revised appointment time. We hope this avoids having to ask patients to wait in their cars or outside in our tropical heat!!! 

  • stay 1.5 metres away from other people whenever and wherever we can
  • maintain good hand washing and cough/sneeze hygiene
  • stay home when unwell, and get tested if we have respiratory symptoms or a fever, and
  • download the COVIDSafe app 

Our success depends on us making these behaviours part of our daily lives during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep us COVIDSafe.
