Keeping our community safe


As you know we are all in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic and would like to assure you we are playing our part to keep our community safe.

We wish to assure our clients that Connect Health & Community is implementing a plan for the safe delivery of services through the COVID-19 pandemic.

For now, wherever possible its business as usual, however the health and wellbeing of the entire community remains our first priority.

We are monitoring this daily based upon the advice provided by the Victorian Chief Health Officer and the Department of Health and Human Services.

If you feel well:
Please keep your appointment for our service or program.

If you feel unwell:
You may have a suspected case of COVID-19 if you have:

  • a fever
  • breathing difficulties (like breathlessness)
  • cough
  • sore throat and/or
  • fatigue/tiredness

AND have travelled overseas in the 14 days before symptoms appeared OR have had close contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19 in the 14 days before symptoms appeared. 

If so, please CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT and do not come to any Connect Health site. 
Call your GP or the COVID-19 Department of Health and Human Services Hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/novelcoronavirus

Look after yourself during these overwhelming times. 

  • stay informed through the Victorian Department of Health COVID-19 health alert https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/novelcoronavirus, which is updated every day;
  • take time out and do something restorative, like exercise, reading or painting; 
  • keep in touch with friends and family to make sure they’re well;
  • take steps to protect yourself and others, such as practising good hygiene and quarantining yourself if you’re sick; and
  • be a smart traveller — check out smatrtraveller.gov.au

By working together as a community we can make a difference.
