Victoria 7 Day Lockdown

A Circuit Breaker

The Victorian Government has announced a Seven Day Lockdown in a bid to curb the state's growing coronavirus outbreak.

The circuit-breaker lockdown will start at 11:59pm tonight and be in place until 11:59pm on 3 June.

FIVE reasons people would be allowed to leave their homes:

  • Food and supplies;
  • Authorised work;
  • Care and caregiving;
  • Exercise for up to 2 hours with one other person;
  • Getting vaccinated.

So what does that mean for us?

Chiropractors can continue to practice but are only permitted to see patient who require essential clinical care.

Essential clinical care  ✅
Routine care                  ❌

Nutritionists can continue to practice through telehealth.

Remedial Massage
All massage is sadly paused for now.

What is essential clinical care?

  • to prevent a significant change/deterioration in functional independence which would result in an escalation of care needs (e.g. an increase in frequency of treatment needed, an increased need for prescription medication due to a significant increase in pain, requirement for specialist input or review, an increase in care needs, and/or a substantial increase to anticipated recovery time associated with a delay in receiving services)

Routine care is not permitted

  • We will contact all  patients to reschedule until after the lockdown (or modify to Telehealth).
  • Online bookings will no longer be available.
  • Essential appointments may be available on request via email/sms/messenger/phone call if you fit the criteria for essential care.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
