CALL before
you come into the clinic.

What is Coronavirus
(COVID-19)?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus that can make people very sick:

  • It is highly infectious,
  • You can have no symptoms and still infect others,
  • There's no medicine or vaccination for this yet.
The symptoms are fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath
The National Coronavirus helpline is 1800 020 080

More information about Coronavirus is available on the Commonwealth Department of Health Coronavirus health alert website or by calling the National Coronavirus Helpline: 1800 020 080

What should I do if I think I have Coronavirus (COVID-19)? 

If you have symptoms and feel you may have been exposed to someone with Coronavirus, contact Danila Dilba on (08) 8942 5400.  Outside Danila Dilba's opening hours, please contact the Northern Territory testing hotline on: 
1800 088 002 or 8922 8044

When you call Danila Dilba, our staff will ask you about your symptoms and your circumstances.  We will advise you whether you should come to a Danila Dilba clinic or go to a special clinic for people with flu-like symptoms.

Danila Dilba will help any clients who call.

If our staff ask you to attend a Danila Dilba clinic, we may also ask you to do some extra things for safety when you arrive, for example, to put on a mask and wash your hands. We may also ask you to wait in your car, or outside the clinic, or in a special room in the clinic before the doctor sees you. These measures protect you, our staff and other clients who are at the clinic.
