We’ve retired the COVID-19 risk matrix 

10 October 2022

Now that COVID-19 is endemic the community, we’ve retired the risk matrix. 

These principles will continue to be important: 

  • mask use in general practices to be encouraged 
  • triaging patients with respiratory symptoms
  • where possible or practical some sort of separation needs to be in place within GP waiting rooms, separating those with respiratory symptoms
  • infection control should be under regular review
  • ventilation and aeration of consult and waiting rooms is important and there should be consideration given to the ongoing use of HEPA filters (opens to PDF).
