Congratulations again to our team of 5 million on now getting the whole of the country back to Covid Alert Level 1. While there is still work to be done, we have reached an important milestone in once again moving to Level 1 of the COVID-19 Alert Level system. Everyone should feel very proud of the work they have done, and we also continue to think of those that sadly passed away over the last 6 months.
Now that we have moved back to Level 1, our services will essentially return to pre-Covid levels. We will no longer have to follow strict physical distancing or use personal protective equipment in most circumstances. We will continue to ask about any illness or flu-like symptoms as part of our screening processes, to help keep all our staff and clients as safe and well as can. We will also continue to be required to keep details of people attending our places of work as part of contact tracing efforts, and ask people to continue to use the QR code in our facilities. People attending a health or disability service may be more vulnerable to COVID-19 for a range of reasons. That is why is is important for us as a health and service to continue to maintain infection prevention and control measures, and to collect information from our clients and other people interacting with our clients at our services. Please continue to wash your hands regularly, sneeze and cough into your elbow, regularly disinfect surfaces, as we will be doing also. If you are asked at any stage by health authorities to self-isolate, please let us know as soon as possible and please don't attend any face to face appointments.
Most importantly, people will have had different experiences over the last couple of months. Whatever you're feeling - it's okay. Be kind to yourself and others, and ask for help if you need it.
Keeping your body & mind A+
