Mask Wearing Policy

Health Department guidelines state that mask use is encouraged in high-risk settings such as healthcare.

gp on beaufort requests patients and visitors attending the practice to wear a mask to help protect patients and staff at greater risk of serious illness from COVID-19.

Patients with Respiratory Symptoms

Any patient experiencing respiratory symptoms must wear a mask, even if their RAT is negative.  Patients are strongly encouraged to book a Telehealth appointment before coming for a face-to-face appointment.

Telehealth Appointment

Even though you may be fully vaccinated this is not a 100% guarantee that you will not contract COVID-19 or spread to others. To protect vulnerable patients and staff we recommend you book a telehealth appointment if you have any respiratory symptoms.

COVID-19 Positive Patients

Please DO NOT book a face-to-face appointment if you have tested positive to COVID-19.

You are required to book a telehealth appointment in the first 7 days of your infection even if you are no longer symptomatic.

Do not visit the practice in person for the first 7 days of your infection.  After 7 days you can visit the practice in person but continue to WEAR A MASK for at least a further 7 days, this is because you may still be infectious.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and require a PCR test, the closest testing centre is Beaufort Street on the corner of Wood and Beaufort Street, Inglewood between the hours of 7am – 1pm Monday to Friday.
