Questions addressed by Professor Wilkinson during the webinar:
- When you say staff should wear face masks, do we mean clinical (doctors and nurses) or admin staff as well?
- I guess it goes back to the issue of the asymptomatic transmitter?
- Does someone quarantined in a Sydney hotel for 14 days have to quarantine again when they travel back to Brisbane? Are they able to go to a drive-through respiratory clinic to be tested on the way to the home that they live in, so that not all that live in the home have to self-isolate for 14 days?
- For skin cancer clinics, should we leave the BCC and only excise SCC and melanoma?
- I’ve read a bit about the symptoms of diarrhoea and loss of smell. Should we add these to our screening questions to patients?
- Is there a view that children should be discouraged as attendees accompanying since there is evidence they may be the main source of asymptomatic carriage and transmission?
