Viral fragments of SARS-CoV-2 have been confirmed in sewage during recent routine testing at Luggage Point wastewater treatment plant, offering a timely reminder that anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should get tested.

The fragments could either indicate the presence of an undiagnosed case of COVID-19 in the community or that a case who is no longer infectious is still shedding fragments of the virus.

Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, and loss of taste or smell.

#TPCH occupational therapist Kylie is an accredited hand therapist and specialises is minimising pain and improving mobility for her patients. 🖐️ We had a chat about how she lends a helping hand to every patient she meets by making custom splints.

"We need to know what they do for work and their interests so we can do our best to make a splint that allows them to, in some ways, continue to do those things," she said.

"We have to think outside the box! We can use a variety of materials to make the splint, and then mould it directly onto the patient so it's the perfect size and fit."
