**This is an important message from the Foster and Toora Medical Centre for all holiday makers from the local health services **
We are in the midst of a major health crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our local medical centres and hospitals are reorganising and preparing to provide the best possible service for our local communities, to attempt to keep them as safe as possible. We have an aging local population who are of course more at risk.
We will not be able to do this with a huge influx of holiday makers coming from the cities. We have limited capacity, at all levels, and we will reach capacity very early in this crisis.
Premier Daniel Andrews said “… our message to every…Victorian remains the same: Stay at home, protect our health system, save lives”.
PLEASE, if you are a holiday maker, seriously consider whether you should be here at this time. Our plea is for you to go home, stay safe and come back when the pandemic is over.
