Please help us protect the health of all Amuri residents and our staff!
When you call Amuri Health Centre for an appointment, all callers will now be asked 4 questions. We understand that this will take a little extra time and may be seen as an inconvenience to some but it IS IMPORTANT.
This is important to our triaging process to evaluate risk to all our patients and staff, regardless of whether you have symptoms or not.

Mainland China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand
If you have travelled to or through any of these countries we advise SELF ISOLATION for 14 days from return, as per Ministry of Health recommendations.
Self Isolation is remaining at home and away form physical contact with others. If contact with others or being in a public place is an absolute necessity a surgical grade mask should be worn and strict cough/sneeze and hand hygiene precautions adhered to.

4. You WILL also be asked if your call is related to any possible skin infection
There has been a number of contagious skin infections within the community and there are a number of people entering the medical centre with these lesions uncovered. This puts others at risk. The nurse will discuss your concerns and will offer an appointment or advise accordingly
PLEASE KEEP ALL OPEN WOUNDS COVERED AT ALL TIMES, especially within the health centre.
