11 May - COVID-19 Update
There are still no known cases of COVID-19 across any of our sites.
On Friday 8 May, the South Australian government released it’s ‘South Australia Roadmap’ for easing COVID-19 Restrictions’. You can find it here.
In line with this roadmap, Bedford is taking our taskforce efforts to the next phase, focusing on recovery rather than response. As such, our taskforce has now been renamed the COVID-19 Recovery Team which will continue to meet multiple times a week and focus on what a future Bedford looks like post COVID-19.
It’s important to note that Stage 1 of the state government’s roadmap now allows us to reach out to our regional sites on a more regular basis thanks to the easing of intrastate travel restrictions (as of today May 11).
The only other element of the State 1 roadmap we are required to adhere to is the continuation of 1.5 metre social distancing protocols. We are also maintaining our strict hygiene and sanitation practices at all sites for the foreseeable future.
Our Victorian residential clients are still facing tough restrictions and for the most part staying at home, due to the recent wave of new Coronavirus cases.
All our team members who are choosing to self-isolate have been mailed the first of a series of ‘Bedford at Home’ workbooks, created to provide learning and support while at home.
As always, our COVID-19 hotline is available for any support or questions you may have on 0429 135 448 or 0429 124 648 (Mon to Fri 8:30am – 5.00pm) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
