Castlemaine Health CEO Ian Fisher has praised the work of hospital staff, local doctors, volunteers and the wider community in keeping Coronavirus (COVID-19) at bay.

Speaking the to Mail on Tuesday Mr Fisher said they were very pleased with the response so far.
“We have only had the six cases in the region to date and we have still had no cases detected at the hospital itself,” Mr Fisher said.

“This is a credit to the community, they have done the right thing, heeded the warnings and restrictions and stayed at home and this has prevented the spread of the virus.” See the Mail for the full story. Out now.
