COVID-19 Update - 12 February 2021

WE ARE STILL OPEN

Following the State Government announcement this afternoon mandating a 5 day stage 4 lockdown, PsychPhys® will prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, families, and professionals PsychPhys® works alongside.

This update is both an opportunity to check in and support the community we work with and reassure you that PsychPhys® has robust planning in place to continue to deliver an uninterrupted service.

Over the next 5 days, PsychPhys® will continue running as an Essential Health Service. We will be providing facilitating programs and Assessment during Stage 4 Lockdown over the next 5 days (11:59 pm Friday 12 February 2021 until 11:59 pm Wednesday (17 February 2021) via Telehealth and Virtual format.

We are diligently following health and safety protocols to keep not only our clients, their families and the community safe but also our practitioners and family members also.

HOW ARE WE RESPONDING

 

PsychPhys® is committed to continuing to deliver high quality services.

Our contingency planning, technology systems, processes and team, is well equipped to weather the current pandemic situation.

We continue our program uninterrupted in the services that we deliver. We continue to practice safety precautions and procedures to look after the health and wellbeing of our program participants and team members, covering the areas of hygiene, self-isolation and risk identification.

Over the next 5 days, PsychPhys® will continue the program under Telehealth/Virtual format via our professional online software systems.

We hope to resume our on-site services in 5 days under covid safe practices once advised by the Government that it is safe to do so.

YOUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

COVID-19 typically presents with a fever, shortness of breath, dry cough and muscle aches and pains symptoms more similar to the flu than a common cold. If you or any of your loved ones have any of these symptoms, we ask that you do not attend on-site, rather instead you present to a ‘COVID-19’ clinic, ‘respiratory clinic’, ‘fever clinic’, or hospital for assessment.

Once medical attention has been prioritised, we ask that you notify us on (03) 9088 7585 or via info@psychphys.com.au.

 

Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed? Here are some handy tips to support you through this difficult time:

  • Connect with loved ones through calls, texts and online
  • Practice Self-Care
  • Keep yourself busy doing enjoyable activities, reading books, doing puzzles/sudoku

Remember, the only information that counts comes from reliable resources. Australian Government websites or the World Health Organisation website are good places to get the facts from scientists and people who understand public health.

If you find yourself overwhelmed, uncharacteristically anxious or fearful, reach out for help from your family and community.

We want to reassure all of our clients and their loved ones that the team at PsychPhys® are continuing to monitor developments in effort to minimise impacts on our day to day program operations.

PsychPhys® thanks you in advance for assisting the PsychPhys® team during this time.
