Covid-19 Update on Stroke Central Services during Alert Level 2
Stroke Central Field Officers will be able to make appointments with clients that are not at risk during Alert Level 2, as of Thursday 14th May 2020.
We will first determine if the client is at risk by going through a short survey with the client via phone.
If the client is deemed at risk or does not want to be visited, we will offer online or phone support instead.
If the client is not deemed at risk, we will organise an appointment following the strict guidelines provided by the government and MOH, including:
– Using PPE
– Social distancing (including for other members who may be in the household)
– Contact tracing
Our office will reopen on Monday 18th May 2020.
Please note, the office will not be open for drop-in visits from clients or outsiders until restrictions are eased.
We will have a register in the office in case of people making an appointment or dropping off supplies (for contact tracing purposes).
