Monitoring COVID-19 infections will now be part of a broader surveillance strategy for respiratory pathogens of public health significance, including influenza and respiratory syncytial virus. Queensland Health will continue to advise the public and health sector about any increased risk to public health from communicable diseases including COVID-19. This may include communications for the public and the health sector on preventing and managing acute respiratory infections. The publication of protocols and guidelines for the management of acute respiratory infections, including COVID-19, in healthcare settings will continue to be available.
The key public health messages on preventing acute respiratory infections remain: get vaccinated, if eligible; clean your hands regularly; stay at home if you are sick; and cover your cough or sneeze to protect others.

We believe that mental health is "a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community" (WHO). We have GPs experienced in mental illness and all aspects of mental health. Our doctors have undertaken mental health skills training recognised through the General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration. Whatever your health care needs, Toogood Road Family Medical Centre has a doctor who will suit your needs.
