As COVID restrictions are lifting everyone is getting out and about. Rather than looking forward to a return to “normal" perhaps we can look to the experience of COVID and how it can inform our new reality. During this current phase even if we are fully vaccinated, we are all still vulnerable to being infected by variants of SARS-CoV-2. With this in mind and the increased people around, take care to maintain social distancing where possible and if you can’t, wear a mask. Continue to think about stopping the spread.
At Lotus Healing Arts COVID precautions continue in line with NSW Health recommendations. We’ll continue to wear masks in the office, complete the usual QR code check-in, take temperatures on arrival and maintain less than 1 person per 4 m2. Remember if you have any cold or flu symptoms we ask you not attend the clinic and instead go get tested.
Be sensible and enjoy re-entry. :))

During current COVID restrictions managing your health is essential, as such health care for urgent conditions is considered an essential service. Whether you are managing pain, mental health, stress related issues, internal conditions such as digestive, breathing, menstrual issues etc, you can continue your care so long as you are following NSW Health advice. As such Lotus Healing Arts remains open.
Patients are asked to not attend if they have COVID-19 symptoms, are a close or casual contact and wear a mask when attending. In view of the current community transmission, the advice from Dr Kerry Chant, NSW Chief Medical Officer, is that all people who are eligible get fully vaccinated as “2 doses are required to achieve good protection from the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2.”
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms – runny nose, sore throat, headache, cough, fever present to a COVID testing site and remain in isolation until you receive your result. If positive you will be contacted by NSW Health for further directions.
As part of group 1B, I am fully vaccinated, and masks are worn by everyone attending the clinic. Usual QR code check-in, ensure less than 1 person per 4 m2, temperatures are check and hand sanitising practices continue at Lotus Healing Arts continue.
Be cautious in the community and socially distance where possible. Wear a mask to keep your microbes closer to you.
Together we can overcome this. Stay safe.
