  1. You have returned from overseas or interstate within the last 14 days;


  1. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is waiting on a COVID-19 test result.

  • All participants are contacted prior to coming into the clinical trial facilities to confirm they are well and have not had any contact with a person who may have COVID-19.
  • We are minimising non-essential visits and using telephone consultations where possible.
  • We are working with our clinical trial Sponsors and service provides to be prepared in the event of further changes.
