WHCG acting medical services director Dr John Gallichio reassures locals
Wimmera Health Care Group acting medical services director Dr John Gallichio has reassured the regional community that in-depth contact tracing involving two new positive COVID-19 cases in Horsham is underway.
He has provided an update statement –
“We understand the Horsham community and district is concerned and anxious about the two COVID-19 cases that have been detected in the last 48 hours.
“Please be reassured that the contact tracing for those individuals is underway. Fortunately, they have not needed hospitalisation.
“But it reinforces all the things we’ve been talking about over the last few months about practicing social distancing, using hand sanitisers and washing hands – also that if you are unwell, not going to work and staying home and being tested. You are able to have that test done through our COVID-18 assessment clinic.
“And the other important thing is to use you’re the COVID-SAFE app.
“The individuals who have been tested and found to be COVID-19 positive are providing information about their contacts.
