By AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers

April 2, 2020 -- Six staff members at a radiology clinic in Australia have tested positive for COVID-19, according to a report by Australian television station 9News.

The clinic is located in Frankston, a suburb of Melbourne, and is part of one of Australia's largest medical imaging networks, I-Med Radiology.

The clinic is currently closed for sanitization and disinfection, but the clinic's leadership team plans to reopen the facility to practitioners and patients since it is considered an essential healthcare provider during the ongoing outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Clinic staff are working with the Australian federal government to notify patients who had close contact with infected employees. Employees who had close contact with affected staff members will also self-isolate for 14 days and be tested for COVID-19 before returning to work.
