HOSPITAL EMERGENCY CENTRE FOR EMERGENCIES ONLY

Hospitals in the Western Cape are currently under severe pressure. This is as a result of the sharp increase in patients requiring to be admitted with severe COVID-19 as well as the increase in non-COVID-19 trauma cases. 

Our healthcare workers are also under severe pressure. They are spending their Festive Season away from their loved ones to help your loved ones. Please help us to support them by only going to the hospital’s emergency centre for life-saving and urgent medical care. 

For non-emergencies, please go to your nearest clinic. 

Please note that our clinics can only test people for COVID-19 who meet the testing criteria. We cannot test people who need a negative COVID-19 certificate for travel purposes.  

The following people will be tested for COVID-19 in the Overberg:

  • All people with coronavirus symptoms  
  • People with coronavirus symptoms admitted to hospital 
  • People with coronavirus symptoms AND who reside in large group confined spaces (old age, homes, care homes, hostels, prisons) 
  • Pre-operative testing of coronavirus asymptomatic patients awaiting surgery (should be tested 3 days or less before their operation). 
  • Natural deaths occurring at home who had coronavirus symptoms. 
  • All Health Care Workers with coronavirus symptoms 
  • Health Care Workers who are in quarantine and asymptomatic at day 7 (to allow early return to work). 
  • Those who previously tested PCR positive, but have developed new coronavirus symptoms, should only be tested 90 days after their first PCR test

Do your part: wear a mask and avoid crowds.
