Currently elective surgery is limited to category 1 and 2a surgeries (urgent only) . We have not been notified when this will change from the department of health, or what parameters are being used, but we still have many COVID cases in ICU and a second peak is expected after lockdown easing. We expect many infected Melbournians to journey into our area . This may particularly effect the Geelong and Surf Coast as evidenced by waste water COVID detection in Apollo bay, Aires inlet and Lorne. Our situation is very uncertain. We will endevour to keep you informed and thankyou for your patience.
