We’re monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely and following official advice.
Information current as at 26 March 2020
Aruma is following all World Health Organisation, Australian Government and state health authorities’ advice.
We’re making changes to our services, and continuing to plan, to keep everyone safe at Aruma – our staff, customers, families and carers, contractors and suppliers, business customers, and all others who visit our services and sites.
We have a Pandemic Response Team managing our organisational response to COVID-19. The team is developing guidelines for us to follow. The safeguards we are implementing all meet official Australian Government COVID-19 guidelines.
As an organisation, we need to do all we can to slow the spread of the virus. This means listening to, and following, Government guidelines, particularly around social distancing.
All Aruma staff are responsible for ensuring they keep customers, visitors and themselves safe by adhering to our hygiene policies. These include washing hands properly and following coughing and sneezing etiquette.
We are also making changes to our approach to visitors at our services to comply with Government social distancing requirements. Read more about these changes.
The situation and response to COVID-19 in Australia is changing constantly. We’re providing updated information to our staff, to our customers and their families, and visitors to our sites.
Where we can, our staff are maintaining four weeks of supplies. This include medications and items for safe food handling, infection control, and cleaning. We’re also in ongoing contact with a variety of suppliers and the government on how best to maintain this buffer.
Staff have easy-to-understand information for customers. This includes information on self-care, activities and exercise.
We’ll continue to arm our staff with resources to help our customers and supported employees understand what changes may need to happen and what they should do.
To keep our customers, staff, and the community safe, there are some
changes to our services.
