The Australian Government Department of Health has provided a range of advice to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the Australian community, and help protect vulnerable people.
- covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
- washing your hands often with soap and water, including before and after eating, after going to the toilet and after touching communal surfaces or items such as furniture
- cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and frequently used objects such as mobiles, keys and wallets (and supermarket trolley handles if possible)
- to avoid touching your face
- keeping a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and other people whenever possible
- avoidance of handshaking, kissing, hugging and other physical greetings
- avoiding any events and gatherings and suggesting to the organiser that they be rescheduled, staggered or preferably cancelled
Travel restrictions & self isolation
- if you have travelled overseas or interstate to any Australian state, when you return to SA you are required by the Government to self-isolate for 14 days. This means staying home and only having contact with people in your house.
- if you are unwell, contact your GP for medical advice. Avoid any contact with your neighbours and do not attend community events or activities.
- if you are in self-isolation for any reason, inform us so that we can help to support you during this time.
We are asking all of our clients and residents to notify us if they meet any of the current travel restriction criteria, or are in self-isolation for any reason by calling 1800 852 772.
