The Victorian government has announced an extension to the lockdown in a bid to curb the state’s growing Coronavirus outbreak. This ‘circuit-breaker lockdown’ will continue to be in place until 11:59pm on June 10.
Restrictions have been eased in Melbourne Metro and Regional Victoria. Further details can be found here.
We all need to remain vigilant to protect ourselves and our clients, no matter where we live.
The authorities also strongly recommend that eligible people are vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible. To find out where your nearest walk-in or appointment vaccination centre is located, please visit the Department of Health website. Note that people over the age of 40 are now eligible to be vaccinated in Victoria, or can register to be vaccinated in the coming weeks in NSW and QLD.
Providing services to the aged care community is considered to be essential and it is expected that these services will continue. Please note the following:
CARE CONNECT WILL CONTACT YOU IF ANY OF YOUR SERVICES NEED TO BE RESCHEDULED.
IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO DELIVER SERVICES, PLEASE CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, stay well and stay connected by keeping up to date with important health authority guidance and advice, and by logging in to Provider Connect.
