Letter from the Australian Government Department of Health
Dear Chiropractic Practitioners
I am writing to update you on the COVID-19 pandemic situation in Australia and internationally and to outline the Commonwealth’s current and future support for the central role you are playing in our national response.
Allied health professionals are fundamental in meeting community needs in this evolving and complex challenge. We need to look at ways to continue the essential services you provide for vulnerable people. I thank you for your efforts so far in helping to contain the spread of this disease, and the well-being of your clients, and encourage you to maintain your vigilance in seeking to prevent its further transmission. Infections are increasing across Australia, placing a significant burden on the health and aged care systems.
