Two Ballarat pharmacies forced to shut due to staffing pressures


Staff furloughing continues to impact the medical sector in Ballarat.

This time UFS has been forced to temporarily close two of its pharmacies, one in Mt Clear, the other in Doveton Street in Ballarat's CBD.
All other UFS chemists remain open including the 24 hour 'Super Pharmacy' on Sturt Street.
Meantime, Ballarat yesterday recorded 146 new COVID cases with the active tally tumbling to just over 1000.
Our active rate per 100,000 people has also fallen to 953, the lowest in some weeks.
