The World Health Organisation has announced that COVID-19 is a global pandemic. In Australia, the Federal Government has put in place a range of measures to try to limit the spread of the virus in the community. In a constantly changing landscape, we have collated the following information to assist our community of careseekers and care workers.
Where to find information?
The Australian Government Department of Health has the latest medical advice, essential tips on how to slow the spread of the virus and what to do if you feel you may have been exposed.
The World Health Organisation provides rolling updates on the gloabal situation.
Smart Traveller has the latest information for Australian travellers including advice regarding the new isolation measures for returning oversease travellers.
Woolworths has introduced Isolated Hour. Woolworths will open its doors exclusively for the elderly and people with disabilities to ensure safe shopping conditions following the recent spate of panic buying. Please contact your local Woolworths store for further information or www.woolworths.com.au
At this time it is vital that we as a community come together and look out for one another. At Careseekers, we will continue to provide regular updates with the health and well being of our careseekers and care and support workers as our top priority.
Please do not hesitate to contact our team should you have any concerns or queries.
