Information current as at 07th July 2020
From midnight 8 July metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will be on Stage 3 restrictions due to the recent spike in cases of COVID-19.
This means these areas are back to full ‘stay at home’ restrictions. These restrictions have been imposed for the next 6 weeks.
There are now only four reasons people can leave their home:
Travel into and out of these areas should be restricted.
Aruma has Supported Independent Living homes in Victoria and we are working closely with each of these homes to ensure they are well supported.
We have developed specific protocols which outline our response to the restrictions. We are in contact with the families from these homes and are working to ensure all our customers are safe.
We also have processes in place should any positive cases occur.
If your service is located in one of the identified restricted areas, the following restrictions will apply. These are in line with Government advice.
These are in place until further notice.
We are making provision to support our essential workers to continue to support our customers.
Where staff live outside an area that is under Stage 3 restrictions, we have ensured that they have the required documentation and support to travel to and from services. They will also follow Aruma’s strict infection control protocols and processes.
Yes! We are working closely with the local teams to ensure they have adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as well as other essential supplies.
