Community Living Australia's Respone to the end of the South Australian COVID-19 Lockdown

Community Living Australia’s Response to the end of the South Australian COVID-19 Lockdown

As you would be aware, the South Australian State Government has announced that the 7-day lockdown put in place on Tuesday 20 July will end as of 12:01am Wednesday 28 July.

Based on the advice and restrictions put in place by the South Australian Government and SA Health, Community Living Australia has responded by making the following changes to operations and service provision:

  • Day Options, Community Supports and Respite services will resume from Wednesday 28 July.
     
    • This will be done following the 1 person per 4 square metre requirement.
       
  • Accommodation, SIL and In Home Supports will continue as per usual.
     
    • Masks must be worn at all times by Community Living Australia employees when supporting clients in any service. This includes when transporting clients in vehicles and when supporting clients to access the community, including visiting shops, café’s, restaurants, and other services.
       
    • The only exceptions are if the mask needs to be removed for communication purposes or if it is causing undue stress to the client.
       
  • All office-based employees will resume working from the offices, and all offices will once again be open to the public from Wednesday 28 July.
     
    • Employees who work from our Victoria Crescent office are the only exception to this ruling, returning in a staggered manner over Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 and Friday 30 July due to ICT requirements.

If there are any further changes, we will provide you with timely updates.

We thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding as we endeavour to meet the requirements, wellbeing and safety of all people within Community Living Australia and the broader community.
