To protect Riverina Cancer Care Centre patients and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19 the following measures are in place:
For Patients and Visitors
All persons entering the RCCC must sign in at the Reception area, and at the appointment area a staff member will perform a temperature check. Masks are now mandatory to be worn whilst in the facility. If you do not have your own, a mask will be provided to you on entry. If attending for a consultation with an oncologist, or for an education session in the treatment unit only, patients are allowed 1 support person. If you have mobility or cognitive concerns and feel you require a support person outside of this, please call the centre to discuss.
Please do not attend RCCC if:
You have cold/flu symptoms or fever.
You have been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.
If you have travelled outside of the Riverina in the past 14 days please call to advise RCCC of the location and dates. Public Health advice will determine if you may attend RCCC. Please advise the RCCC Admin team 6932 1000 if you meet any of the above criteria. If you have any concerns, discuss with your Oncologist or GP.
