Learn how Latrobe Community Health Service is responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As a community health service, we are committed to helping all members of our community, particularly those who are most vulnerable. We want to provide you with an update on how we are responding to COVID-19.

The drive-through COVID-19 testing clinic at Moe Kmart is permanently closed. Click here for more information.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Let’s reconfirm the symptoms of COVID-19. They can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly.

People with COVID-19 may experience:

  • fever
  • shortness of breath
  • flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, get tested. Call the 24-hour coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19 to find out where your nearest testing clinic is.

Face masks, hand hygiene and social distancing

When you visit one of our sites, please:

  • Wear a face mask.
  • Maintain at least 1.5 metres between yourself and other clients and staff
  • On arrival and departure, use the hand sanitiser provided.

Telehealth services available

Did you know a range of our health services are available via telephone or video conferencing? That’s right – you can get professional health support from your home, including an appointment with a doctor, or support with diabetes, counselling, dietetics, NDIS participant meetings, or children’s services.

You might be surprised by just how many services we can offer remotely.

If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, give us a call on 1800 242 696.
