Corona Virus Precautions at Gippsland Veterinary Group
Changes in Procedures at Small Animal Clinics
As an essential service, all of our clinics are open to meet your veterinary needs. We are of course, taking the necessary precautions to protect your health and safety and that of our staff, during this difficult time. As of March 26th, 2021 we are essentially back to normal operations however we will be observing room occupancy limits (1 person per 2 sq metres). Please discuss any needs you have by phone when you make your appointment.
Please note the following key summary of Covid-19 related steps for our clients and staff:
- whilst in our clinics please respect the taped off areas and use the hand sanitizer provided
- please pay with EFTPOS or credit card (if this is a problem please advise us at the time)
- if you are feeling unwell or are in isolation or quarantine after traveling / exposure to a suspected case, please call the clinic so we can make the most suitable plan to assess your pet
- please observe all government recommended hand hygiene and cough etiquette recommendations
At this stage there is no evidence that pet dogs or cats are a source of infection to other animals or humans. Coronaviruses known to occur in animals do not cause infection in humans and are not associated with the current COVID-19 pandemic.
