Dear Staff and Clients,
As the Dynamics of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to change, Support Systems Options wants to assure our clients and staff that the health and safety of our extended community is our priority.
The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 a pandemic and several Australian states have declared a state of emergency. As the full impact of this disease continues to unfold, we will rely on public health officials’ recommendations and make fact-based decisions regarding the regular operation of our business and regulatory activities.
Right now, prevention is the best measure we can take in response to the threat of COVID-19. Support Systems Options if following guidelines and recommendations from our local governments to help prevent the spread of the virus.
In the meantime, stay vigilant and please take every precaution to prevent the spread of germs. Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds, cough into your elbow, promptly dispose of used tissues and don’t touch your face, practice social distancing, follow the limits for public gathering and understand how to self-isolate if you need to. If you feel sick and have symptoms like flu please stay home and make sure you seek medical clearance before attending to a client.
If you are concerned call the National Coronavirus Helpline for information and advice about Covid-19 on 1800 020 080. If you require translating or interpreting services, call 131 450. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and do all we can to put the health and safety of individuals first.
