Coronavirus Update

Wednesday 15 July 2020

Good morning all,
Thank you all for what has been an incredibly challenging week for our workforce and wider communities with the border restrictions. As Victoria and NSW continue to see an increase in cases there has been the reintroduction of restrictions in both states to reduce the risk of community transmissions with the border restrictions now in place.

It is an important reminder to us all that we each have a duty of care to follow the advice of government and health authorities, including practising hygiene, social distancing, travel advice and get tested if you are showing symptoms.

The NSW Health website has up to date information in relation to border restrictions and self-isolation requirements for those who have travelled to Victoria and to Melbourne in particular.

If you have travelled or plan to travel to any areas outside the border region which takes you to Melbourne, Sydney or a hotspot, please declare this to your Team Leader or Manager as early as possible to ensure that strategies can be put in place for when you return.

NSW Entry Permits – valid for only 14 days and therefore eligible staff will need to remember to re-apply for permits before they expire.

Together we grow.
