Response to COVID restriction changes from October 29, 2021
Dear Soaring Health clients,
Following the Victorian government’s announcement of a phased easing of COVID-19 restrictions from October 29, 2021, we are pleased to advise that our clinics are operating with all regular services including hydrotherapy and gym appointments (these appointments need to be booked in advance). There are no restrictions on essential or non-essential services.
We would like to assure you that, despite the new freedoms, we continue to uphold stringent safety practices and adhere to current government guidelines and requirements of individual clinic centres. This means that any person attending our clinics must wear a face mask indoors, use hand sanitiser, have no known symptoms or recent close contact with a known case (or to have subsequently received a negative test result) and to heed requirements of individual centres in which our clinics are located.
