Kyabram District Health Service is taking a proactive approach to protect both our staff and our community.

If you are unwell and have flu-like symptoms and have travelled overseas recently KDHS would appreciate it if you would please ring ahead to the hospital on 5857 0200 before presenting.
We aim to keep our local community informed as this dynamic situation unfolds.
