COVID-19 in Melbourne

ANZCA President Dr Vanessa Beavis has spoken to Australia’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Nick Coatsworth regarding advice for fellows, trainees and SIMGs in Victoria.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrew has announced that stage 3 “Stay at Home” restrictions will be reinstated across the metropolitan area and the Mitchell Shire from 11.59pm on Wednesday 8 July for six weeks.
Health authorities are preparing advice for hospitals in the affected areas and this will be circulated as soon as possible. In the meantime authorities stress that physical distancing and rigorous attention to hygiene be undertaken. See ANZCA’s latest PPE statement and the clinical resources in the library for further guidance. 

The college is also exploring options for Victorian trainees who have applied to sit the exams next month, in particular primary exam candidates whose exams fall in the lockdown period, and will provide more information shortly.
