Lockdown extended

Hello Everyone,

I guess most of you have heard by now that our lockdown is being extended for another 7 days which means that face-to-face classes will not resume until Friday 11th June at the earliest. As we are given more information from government agencies I will email you with updates.

Don’t forget the June Morning Tea on Monday 7th June. Kathy sent everyone an email informing you that we will have this meeting via zoom starting at 11.00am. Hopefully our July meeting will be face-to-face.

I have received information from The City of Whittlesea to confirm the location of the various testing locations in the Whittlesea area and as there are many sites that are tier 1, 2 and 3 it is important that if you have symptoms, you get tested.

So the news is the same as what you have been hearing over and over again if you have any symptoms at all, you should immediately get tested and isolate until you get your result. In response to the outbreak, additional testing sites have been opened at:

  • Mosaic Pavilion in Lalor 9am until 7pm
  • Epping Memorial Hall, High Street Epping from 8am until 7pm.

You can also get tested at:

  • Schotters Road in Mernda 
  • Northern Hospital in Epping
  • 4Ctye Pathology in Epping.

Site locations and open times are changing. You can stay up to date with testing locations, times and current wait times at www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/getting-tested

If you have been present during the exposed time at any of the sites in the Victorian Government’s website please follow their instructions. Continue to monitor the Victorian Government website for exposure sites as they are constantly being updated.    www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/exposure-sites

Be healthy and stay safe and see you in about a week (hopefully).
