COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) Information

 

27th July Update:

We are open. Our chiropractic practice at Bundaleer Homestead, Gisborne, continues to be permitted to be open as it is considered an essential service. There are restrictions to the amount of people to 1 per 4 square metres, the space we have available at Bundaleer Homestead allows this. Our online booking system allows 1 person to book per time slot – if a family member from the same household wishes to come at that time please text me 0428 660 038 to let me know. You are welcome to text me about making an appointment.

Wearing of face masks is now compulsory for practitioners who work within the social distancing measure of 1.5 metres throughout Victoria. I will be wearing an approved mask while working. When you come and see me you are recommended to wear a face mask but it is not compulsory.

Travel from the lock down area of Melbourne Metropolitan and Mitchell Shire.  You are likely to be stopped at a police checkpoint on the way to Gisborne. Travelling to your appointment with me is a legitimate reason to be exiting the lock down area. People coming to see me in the last couple of weeks have said that telling the officials at the checkpoint that they have a chiropractic appointment in Gisborne is sufficient reason to be let through. Evidence of your appointment is the text message you receive from me on your mobile, or a print-out of your appointment details may be a good option. Don’t go to places other than visiting me at Bundaleer Homestead if you have come from the lock down area, as this may not be permitted.
