  • Two Eyre Peninsula hospitals have refused to be included in their Local Health Network’s (LHN) plan to treat less seriously ill COVID-19 patients because of dated equipment and insufficient staff.
  • Patients who present with respiratory symptoms will be seen in a designated area separate from the main hospital, and face-to-face consultations would be avoided when possible.
