COVID-19 novel coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus affecting humans. The signs and symptoms are as follows:
If you, or someone you care for, is experiencing the above symptoms, check out the COVID-19 Symptom comparison page.
If you are concerned, please seek medical advice. You can call your GP, 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84), present to our fever clinic or present to your closest emergency department.
Please call your closest emergency department before presenting if you are unable to attend the fever site in Toowoomba.
You might catch COVID-19 if:
There is no specific treatment for COVID-19 infection. As it is a virus, antibiotics are not effective. There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19.
As soon as a person is confirmed positive for coronavirus, we undertake contact tracing. This means we speak with the patient to retrace their steps and identify anyone who might have had close contact with them. If there are people at a higher risk, we follow up with them directly. If we can’t identify who could have been in close contact with a confirmed case, we issue a public health alert with specific dates, times and locations that you should be aware of.
For more information on contact tracing, click here.
There are 6 ways we can all help stop the spread of this virus.
As we continue to manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic your elective surgery, routine procedure or outpatient appointment may be postponed.
Our hospitals are safe, and if you need us we’re here to help.
GPs will continue to manage non-urgent care locally and escalate to us when they need to.
When we can, we will offer your appointment via telehealth.
If your condition worsens please talk to your GP.
Please be assured that all urgent outpatient appointments will proceed, either face-to-face or virtually, and we are still providing urgent elective procedures.
Our hospitals, healthcare workers and GPs are working hard to balance the needs of the emergency, acute, elective and outpatient care of Queenslanders whilst ensuring they can continue to provide safe and timely care to those who need it most.
We understand you want to visit your friends and relatives while they are recovering in hospital. To protect the most vulnerable, and to manage the spread of coronavirus, there are limits on visitors to all hospitals within our region.
We understand this is hard, and we know visitors play an important role in a patient’s recovery. Technology makes it easy to stay in touch remotely, and we encourage you to stay connected through phone, text, email, social media or video-chat.
