Our first priority at Riversdale Orthodontics, as always, is the health and safety of our Riversdale Orthodontic Community.
Our Practice is open and business as usual as of Thursday February 18, 2021.
Currently, it is still a requirement for masks to be worn at all times when inside our practice building.
Following guidelines from the Department of Health and Victorian Government, you are required to immediately isolate for 14 days and get a COVID-19 test if you have visited any of the recent exposure sites around Melbourne. Please advise us immediately if you have visited any of these sites and have an upcoming appointment. You will not be allowed to visit the Practice for a minimum of 14 days and will need to present a negative COVID-19 test.
Please see the following link for more information and a list of exposure sites.
As stated on DHHS, if you have travelled interstate and visited either an orange or red zone:
"Orange zone: You will be able to apply for a permit and enter Victoria if you don’t have COVID-19 symptoms and haven’t been to a currently listed red zone in the last 14 days. Once in Victoria you must immediately self-isolate, get a COVID-19 test within 72 hours and continue to self-quarantine until you get a negative test result.
Red zone: You will not be allowed to enter Victoria without an exception, exemption or work or transit permit. If you try to enter Victoria at a land border without an exception, exemption, or work or transit permit you will be turned away. Victorian travellers who arrive at an airport or seaport will be fined and required to self-quarantine. Interstate travellers will be fined and sent back."
Please see here for recent travel updates for returning to Victoria.
Thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
