Why a doctor is concerned about COVID-19 complacency on the Mornington Peninsula

A doctor who oversees the COVID-19 testing site at the Rosebud respiratory clinic says she’s concerned about possible virus spread on the Mornington Peninsula due to complacency and significant delays in listing exposure sites.

Dr Sally Shaw told Neil Mitchell her testing site had recorded 13 positive cases over the past two weeks, ranging from Flinders, to Dromana, to Boneo and Safety Beach.

“Every day we are getting them (new cases),” she said.

Despite this, Dr Shaw said the clinic (which is one of just two testing sites in the area) was not seeing large numbers of people being tested.

“It worries me because I know we are getting positive cases and know the contacts have not been informed,” she said.

Dr Shaw went on to list several places she knew were exposure sites, but had not been listed yet:

  • IGA Dromana on Wednesday 22nd September between 3:30pm-4:30pm
  • Aldi Dromana on Wednesday 22nd Sep between 3:30pm-4:30pm
