Important update regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Aspire4Life is taking the Australian Coronavirus health alert very seriously. It is our highest priority to ensure we are well prepared, taking the direction of the Department of Health and peak bodies.
As always, the health and safety of our customers and staff is paramount. We take great pride in providing quality and safe services and are committed to minimising the spread of COVID-19.
We have well established protocols and processes for infection control events which help keep everyone as safe as we possibly can. All staff and related health professionals are working extremely hard to ensure a very strict adherence to these protocols.
We have taken proactive and extra precautionary measures to reduce the risk of the virus.
- Regular broadcast and visual communication to keep everyone informed and diligent
- Infection control refresher training face-to-face and online for staff
- Increased monitoring of clients by all staff for any ‘flu like’ symptoms and immediate reporting protocols
- Ordering and implementation of extra personal protective equipment and other sanitising supplies
- Introduced extra higher-grade premises cleaning
During this time, we would like to send a strong reminder to all of our customers and family members of the critical importance of frequent hand washing, coughing into crook of your arm, binning used tissues, social distancing and avoiding close contact with others if you are feeling unwell.
The precautions we have taken are to protect our customers, family members and staff. We understand your potential frustration but we rely on your assistance to help keep our community safe during these trying times.
For further information, we guide you to The Department of Health who are providing regular updates and information on the status of the situation.
