COVID-19 Update (10 November 2022): 

 From tomorrow, Friday 11/11/22 Queensland's COVID-19 traffic light system will move to amber due to a COVID-19 wave. All True clinics and offices will adapt to these precautions as advised.

While the traffic light is amber, masks should be worn:

  • in healthcare settings
  • indoors, if you can’t socially distance
  • on public transport
  • if you are older or medically at risk
  • if you’re around people who are vulnerable to COVID-19.

Stay home if you are sick and or have symptoms.

Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) should be taken if you get COVID-19 symptoms. If someone in your household has COVID-19, you should take a RAT every two days.

If you get COVID-19:

  • register your RAT result
  • stay home until you’re well again
  • wear a mask for 7 days after your test
  • avoid visiting hospitals, aged care or disability care for 7 days after your test
  • ask household members to closely monitor symptoms.

You should always wear a mask if required by a healthcare provider, venue, or household.
