In light of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic in Australia and around the world, it is recommended to practice protective measures such as social distancing, hand washing and other hygiene measures in order to reduce transmission as much as possible.
We would like to reassure all of our current and new OGCG patients that they can safely attend their OGCG appointments. We are committed to provide the highest level of care to all our patients in a safe environment. We have multiple processes in place to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff.
If you experience any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell or taste, please get tested for COVID-19. If you test positive to COVID-19 or are a close contact, please call us before attending your appointment so that appropriate arrangements can be made. We will ensure that your care continues to be provided in the safest possible way.

Flu vaccine is still highly recommended for pregnant women. While it will not influence response to COVID-19 infection, it will reduce everyone’s risk and severity of influenza infection as we come into the flu season in Australia.
