COVID-19 concern surrounds osteopath in Melbourne’s north-west
Multiple people have been directed to isolate and get tested for COVID-19 after visiting an osteopath in Melbourne’s north-west last Friday.
But the Avondale Heights clinic still hasn’t been listed as a possible exposure site by the government.
Neil Mitchell was contacted by Marie, who is isolating in Adelaide with her husband and daughter.
Her daughter visited the clinic on Friday, travelled to Adelaide on Saturday and got a text from the health department on Tuesday.
Marie said she was “quite frustrated and annoyed” at the lack of further information.
Victoria’s Testing Commander, Jeroen Weimar, said he didn’t want to discuss specific cases “in the media” but confirmed there was a positive case that visited an osteopath.
He explained why it hadn’t been listed as an exposure site.
“Because it was a private venue, with private clients, we contacted all the private clients and all the staff who worked on that time window and they were all told they were primary close contacts and asked to isolate and get tested,” he said.
