Welcome to Circle Health

We' ve built a long standing relationship based on trust

How has Covid-19 affected Melbourne

We are working closely with the University of Melbourne alongside the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) , the Australian Government and health experts. Our main priority is the safety, health and wellbeing of our staff and our community. We will provide an updated information to enable everyone to know what is going on. There has been an emergency support fund that is available to assist students who have experienced financial hardship as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Coronavirus has forced us to discontinue the way we used to clean and currently have set procedures to increase the cleaning of surfaces. This means disinfecting contact surfaces such as elevator buttons, escalator rails and counter tops. Cleaning frequency has been increased, focusing more on making sure bathrooms cleaned every two hours. We’ve also installed hand sanitiser inside all of our amenities, and throughout the facility we are promoting hygiene practices in line with government advice.

At Circle Health we take into consideration all individuals, contact us immediately if you believe you have Covid 19. If tested positive, you must stay at home, so to keep others from getting the any coronavirus cases. We are a screening clinic in Melbourne at Circle Health who test acute respiratory systems along with testing for covid-19. Alongside providing you with the test results to allow you to know what is going on with your body.

We are a COVID19 Testing Melbourne facility that will aid people of health and human services. If you are experiencing fever, cough or sore throat within the span of 48 hours, you may be at a high risk of having the coronavirus. It is most likely due to long term delaying of flu vaccine, not drinking plenty of fluids, or simply because it’s flu season. To prevent the flu it just needs a quadrivalent vaccines similar to all the preventable diseases.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Australian Government has put in place travel restrictions. The current information is that as of 20 March 2020 only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia.

There are two kinds of tests that can be conducted to detect whether a person has been infected with SARS-CoV-2 and has the COVID-19 virus:

  1. The test detects the presence of the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus in your body. Also, this usually done by testing if the virus is present in your nasal secretions (snot) or sputum (saliva/spit).
  2. Tests that detect whether your body has developed / produced antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 infection. So this is usually done by taking a sample of your blood and testing your blood for specific antibodies to detect.

Furthermore, for more information on the testing process visit the Australian department of Health Site:

For COVID19 Testing Melbourne, please contact us immediately!

If it’s a regular surgical face mask, the answer is no, said by Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. So, a more specialised mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new corona virus, also called SARS-CoV-2. Hence, the respirator is thicker than a surgical mask.

Finally, for COVID19 Testing Melbourne, please contact us immediately!

Alcohol-free hand sanitisers should be fine to use on exposed screen. So long as they are effective against both viruses and bacteria. However even a quick wipe of your hands with hand sanitiser can majorly cut down the sweaty, oily germs on your phone screen.
