With a somewhat unusual term two due to coronavirus restrictions and the subsequent shut-down, the Hear our Heart Ear Bus was excited to hold their very first community day at the Warren Multipurpose Health Service.
The Warren Interagency group assisted in facilitating the partnership between the Hear our Heart Ear Bus Project and the Warren MPS, while the Warren Aboriginal Lands Council assisted in promoting the day.
"It was a fabulous first day and we could not be happier with the support shown and the amount of people wanting to access our servic," a spokesperson for the project said.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic staff emerged from the lockdown offering two community days at the Dubbo office, putting into practice the covid testing manual they had developed while in lockdown.
Plans to hold community days for urgent children were put on hold as restrictions eased and the bus was able to go back to testing at schools and childcare centres that allowed visitors on their premises.
The Ear Bus will again be at the Warren MPS on Tuesday 6th October 2020, with plans to make this a regular service.
The Ear Bus has a full covid procedure policy in place, and they hope to be back at all premises they were previously at in term three.
