Stay at home order for Orange, Blayney and Cabonne Local Government Areas

To protect the people of NSW from the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, new restrictions are now in place for the Orange City Council, Blayney Shire Council, and Cabonne Shire Council areas until Wednesday 28 July.

Stay at home orders apply to all people who live in these areas or have been there on or after Saturday 17 July. Everyone in these areas must stay at home unless it is for an essential reason. People in these three Council Areas cannot have visitors in their home, including social visits from family and friends outside of their household.

The reasons you may leave your home include:
• Shopping for food or other essential goods and services;
• Medical care or compassionate needs (people can leave home to have a COVID-19 vaccination unless you have been identified as a close contact);
• Exercise outdoors in groups of 2 or fewer (unless members of the same household);
• Schools will remain open, under Level 3 restrictions. All staff and students are still expected to be at school.
• Work, or tertiary education, where you cannot work or study from home.
• To attend a wedding or a funeral (but only until 12:01am on Friday 23 July 2021). After this date, funerals will be limited to ten people.
• Masks must be worn indoors (not including the home) and in outdoor settings where you cannot socially distance from others (e.g. while queuing for takeaway).

People still can have one visitor at one time to fulfil carers’ responsibilities or provide care or assistance, or for compassionate reasons, including where two people are in a relationship but do not live together.

COVID-19 testing clinics are open at Bathurst, Orange, Parkes, Blayney and Molong. It is vital people continue to come forward for testing to help us find any COVID-19 cases in the community.

More information is available on the NSW Government website https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules/affected-regions

Not just QLD, NSW also has a massive shortage of veterinarians and support staff 🥰 We try to do our best
31/03/2021

Not just QLD, NSW also has a massive shortage of veterinarians and support staff 🥰 We try to do our best

Dr Kate works at our Coomera practice and is a new graduate. 👩‍🎓 Did you know that a Bachelor of Veterinary Science takes 5-6 years of full time study to achieve? It also has an entry score of OP1 or ATAR 98.85 and the degree can take 20 years to pay off. 😳

The award wage for a new graduate veterinarian is $26.32 per hour or $53,000. The award for an experienced senior veterinarian with more than 10 years experience earns $37.93 per hour or $75,000.

Sadly, our vets are told ‘You’re just in it for the money’ almost every single day, so I feel it necessary to educate the public on how much they actually earn in the hope this statement will not be said again. 😕

These high achievers are paid very poorly for the level of skill & education required and the stress they are under daily. They are truly in the job as they have a calling to help animals and deserve to be treated with respect & kindness. 🐶💕🙏🏼

One of the reasons the industry is suffering from a severe veterinary shortage is the high drop out rate. Vets are leaving the industry in droves and studies have shown the main reason for them leaving is not the poor pay & working conditions but the abuse and emotional blackmail from clients. This has to stop before there are no vets left. The Veterinary industry is in danger of collapse! 🛑✋

There are currently over 130 positions vacant for veterinarians between the Sunshine Coast & Gold Coast. The average time it takes to find a new vet in Australia is 6months and many of these jobs won’t get filled at all. Practice Owners are also selling up because they can’t get help & are burnt out. 😪Corporate ownership of veterinary practices on the Gold Coast is now nearing 60%. The family vet is becoming extinct so please choose a family owned vet wherever possible. 🙏🏼

Despite the terrible position the industry is in, I again want to say ‘Thank you’ to our clients who bring joy to the faces of our vets and nurses daily and treat them with kindness. You really make a difference to our day and we love it when you visit!! 🤗🙏🏼🥰

To those who want to say ‘You’re just in it for the money’ or ‘If you cared you’d do this free’, I hope after reading this post you never want to say that again. These statements are literally killing vets and are so far from the truth it’s not funny.

We’re working really hard to ensure our vets love their job because there are not many left and a world without vets is a very scary place. 😔

Please be kind to vets, they’re a dying breed. 👩‍⚕️ 🐾

✨COUNTING OUR BLESSINGS ✨ I received a call that nobody wants to receive. There’s a SNAKE in MY backyard. My girl Talee was our defence strike and miraculously did not get injured. A HUGE thank you to Sarah from Pet Medical Centre & Dubbo Equine Hospital who went above and beyond to ensure our girl was OK. Her professionalism and courtesy was amazing. We are so grateful to have Talee. Its currently breeding season for snakes and we hope this does not happen to you. Cheers, Nat ❤️

Have you ever seen a sweeter face 🥰 this is my Bice Di Arajani (imp Ita)getting her check up and vacations at my Pet Medical Centre & Dubbo Equine Hospital. Such a beautiful girl, just takes everything in her stride.
Well, what an incredible couple of days we have had in Suva. We have all come a long way since just last week, completing 40 desexing in two days! A big thank you to the amazing support crew, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help. We finished our two days with a Kava ceremony & meeting some of the instrumental people here in Fiji who helped make our trip possible followed by a lovely meal made by the staff from Ministry of Agriculture. Thank you again to all those that have supported us, we greatly appreciate it & couldn’t have done this without you. We also owe a big thank you to the Ministry of Agriculture Fiji Fiji National University Rotary Chadstone East Malvern Zoetis Zoetis Commitment to Veterinarians IDEXX Provet PetSure @scrubshop @coxstreetvetsandlivestocklogic @centreforveterinaryeducation Pet Medical Centre & Dubbo Equine Hospital for their ongoing support & donations. #FijiSnipTrip19 #dogsofFiji #dogsofSuva #CSUGlobal #populationcontrol #spayandneuter #vetstudentlife #vetlife #finalyearrotations #CSUclassof2020 #IDEXXAU #IDEXXcommunitysupport
Once arriving to the village by boat, we helped Julie, Gavin & Claire as well as the @Fiji Agriculture & the @Fiji National University (FNU) teams setup our surgery tables, supplies & equipment. We were fortunate enough to be able to have 3 tables & the equipment set up in the waiting room of the Islands’ nurse. With another table setup outside the entrance to the waiting room after the men of the village kindly built us an extended shelter structure to protect us from the hot afternoon sun. After finishing setting up, we were ushered to the village Chiefs home for the Sevusevu (welcoming) ceremony where we were able to meet Fiji’s oldest & only female Chief, an amazing woman still fulfilling her role as Chief at the age of 93. After the ceremonial duties were fulfilled as well as our stomachs we got started on our surgeries. Due to everyone from the village being on Fiji time, we got off to a bit of a late start every day. As most of the students had only done a spay &/or neuter as a part of the universities spay clinics, we got off to a slow start with our surgeries but as each day passed & as our confidence grew under the guidance of the veterinarians from both Australian& Fiji we got to spay & neuter 48 animals from Somosomo, Gunn & Nasoqo villages. When we weren’t performing surgeries, recovering animals, fetching or returning animals by boat to neighbouring villages, we were fortunate enough to be welcomed into Somosomo village & treated as if we were old friends. We have had a lovely time here on Naviti Island & we are grateful to all the beautiful people & animals on this Island that have made it so memorable. #FijiSnipTrip19 #NavitiIsland #Somosomovillage #Gunuvillage #Nasoqovillage #fijivillagelife #fijivillagedogs #Vinakafiji #CSUGlobal #populationcontrol #spayandneuter #vetstudentlife #vetlife #finalyearrotations #CSUclassof2020 #IDEXXAU #IDEXXcommunitysupport Ministry of Agriculture Fiji FNU Samabula Rotary Chadstone East Malvern Zoetis Commitment to Veterinarians Zoetis IDEXX Provet PetSure Scrub Shop Cox Street Vets and Livestock Logic Centre for Veterinary Education Pet Medical Centre & Dubbo Equine Hospital
