Arthritis SA revised work practices in response to COVID-19
With the increased presence of the Coronavirus in Australia it is important that as an organisation and individuals we take responsibility and all precautions to protect ourselves and others in our community to reduce risk of infection and spread of the disease.
Accordingly, we are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies for the latest developments related to COVID-19 and following the guidance of government and public health officials.
We are reinforcing these agencies' recommendations on the appropriate health and safety measures with our own teams and work practices.
As a result, we regretfully advise that after careful deliberation of associated risks, we have elected to postpone all public facing events and introduced temporary work practices to assist in containing the spread of the Coronavirus.
Revised Work Practices
- All external events up to 31 May have been postponed and will be re scheduled for later in the year
- Everyone entering the building is required to use the hand sanitizer at reception
- All external meetings should be attended by teleconference where possible
- Education seminars will be rescheduled to later in the year when it is safe to do so
