Important CEO Update, 28 October 2020

28 October 2020

Dear Families and Friends,

As we progress from Stage 4 lockdown and with everyday life getting much closer to a COVID normal we are all feeling much brighter.   

I am delighted to report that OC Connections Enterprises received the all clear and has returned to a COVID normal working environment. Reports from Government Departments attest to our strong infection control measures. 

With the one person who was asymptomatic working in our building we had no other person contract COVID which reinforces that the infection control measures in place held up and protected people when it counted.   

In coming weeks as restrictions ease across Melbourne OC Connections will open up slowly and settle into a new COVID normal for the delivery of service and supports.  If you wish to know more about this please speak to your usual staff member to understand the changes we are making.

I want to again reassure you that our social distancing and infection control measures will remain in place as we continue to make every effort to keep people safe.

It had been a very difficult seven months for everyone and at OC Connections we have valued your continued support and positive feedback.  

Again please speak with your usual OC Connections staff contact for more detailed information about how we will open up again.  

Stay safe


Therese Desmond
CEO OC Connections
