Following the recent outbreak in South Australia known as the ‘Parafield Cluster’, Bedford’s dedicated COVID-19 Taskforce has been reactivated to assess and monitor the rapidly evolving situation, provide regular updates to staff and clients and pass on important directions from the State Government to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.
As always, for the safety and wellbeing of our staff and clients, Bedford is adhering to the directions and advice provided by the SA Government. The directives and guidelines issued by the SA Government on 16 November 2020 and increased health, safety and hygiene practices are being rolled out across all our sites.
It is important to note though that to date there are still no known cases of COVID-19 at any Bedford site and our operations are business as usual.
Bedford’s Day Options and Community Access and Lifestyle services are also still running, however in the event changes to some programs may be required in order to meet the SA Government directives, we will contact affected clients, their families and supporters.
For any additional information or questions, the internal Bedford COVID-19 hotline is available for support on 0429 135 448 or 0429 124 648 or 0413 743 203 (Mon to Fri 8:30am – 4:30pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
