All staff are following recommendations from the Department of Health regarding good hygiene practices to minimise the spread and impact of the virus including:

  • Cleaning their hands regularly with soap and water.
  • Using hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.
  • Avoiding physical contact, such as shaking hands.
  • Use gloves in assistance with any personal care, assisted eating etc.
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • Staff who are exhibiting flu-like symptoms will not be delivering supports.

If you have face to face supports scheduled, a member of our team will either call ahead to ask the following questions or ask on arrival:

  1. Do you have cold or flu symptoms, such as coughing, fever, runny nose or sore throat?
  2. Have you been in contact with someone who has had cold or flu symptoms?
  3. Have you been overseas or met someone from overseas?

If the answer is yes to any of the above questions, no face to face contact is to occur until further notice. We will work to implement other supports where possible.
