Message from the CEO, 11 August
Dear Families and Friends
I am writing to inform you that at 6 pm Saturday 8 August, we were advised that one of our staff members from 773 Warrigal Rd had tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on site on Thursday 6 August. They did not attend work with symptoms and immediately went for a COVID test. In this instance, the staff member did everything right and adhered to all protocols.
As an immediate action to protect the health and safety of our workplace, we notified all employees, participants, and their families who use that site.
The case has been reported to the COVID hotline, DHHS Rapid Response, NDIS Quality and Safeguards, and Worksafe and a deep clean of the building was conducted on Sunday 9 August.
As you will appreciate, we immediately closed our centre. We remain in close contact with all participants and families and staff and plan to recommence services on site on Monday 17th August.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for their support and patience at this time.
Stay safe and well.
CEO OC Connections
