Profmed supports our government’s actions to stem the tide of COVID-19 and will continue to make the health and safety of our employees and members our priority. We understand that the members of our community are anxious during this period, and we will do our best to be supportive in every aspect.

Stay up to date with the latest data on the virus as it becomes available. Understanding the virus and the impact on our humanity is key to driving education, creating resilience and flattening the curve.

Do you think you have COVID-19?

If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive or someone who has been travelling and suspect you could have contracted the virus and/or you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, e.g. fever, headache, shortness of breath, coughing etc, then it is best to call your healthcare practitioner. Your family healthcare practitioner is the best person to assist you with understanding whether your symptoms warrant COVID-19 testing. See our online COVID-19 Self-Assessment questionaire, which will give you more guidance.
