St John staff member perform a mini health check for Coolgardie resident. 

Coolgardie's regular over 50’s morning tea 3C Cuppa, Cake & Conversation group had a special visit from Coolgardie St John’ Ambulance today.

This was a fantastic opportunity for Shane and Gaynor (St John Ambulance) to perform mini health checks, answer concerns regarding COVID-19 and demonstrate the correct procedure for use of a rapid antigen test (RAT).

The Shire of Coolgardie also ensured they received their free Pulse Oximeters. A huge thank you to our wonderful St John Ambulance volunteers who provide an outstanding service to our community.

What is a pulse oximeter?
It is a small, peg-like device that clips onto your fingertip to read your heart rate
and blood oxygen level. It takes only one minute to work, is reusable and can be
shared between other people in your household.

If you become COVID-19 positive, you may need to be remotely monitored through the
WA COVID Care at Home program. By having a pulse oximeter already in your home,
a health professional can assess you and provide health advice from the comfort of your home.
