“I am writing to thank you for continuing to operate and provide allied health services to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We especially value your expertise as practising and accredited health professionals/ keeping people well in the community/ out of hospital and contributing to their quality of life. This letter is confirmation that the health care services you provide can continue to operate throughout the pandemic.
We appreciate the challenges you are facing in providing health care services/ in adapting to telehealth where possible and in keeping your doors open. As we move towards living in a COVIDSafe Australia we will continue to develop resources to aid you in this.
I would also encourage you to download the COVIDSafe app/ if you haven't done so already. This public health tool is designed to help stop the spread of COVID-19, protecting your clients, family and friends. The app speeds up the manual process of finding people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and is voluntary to download.
As highly valued members of the health community, I would like to express my appreciation for your hard work providing essential health care services to your clients in these challenging times.”
