Update on the Coronavirus for the Identitywa Community (4 March 2020)

  • Posted on 5 March 2020

We are committed to keeping the people we support, their families and our staff, informed about the Government’s recommendation regarding the Coronavirus.

Identitywa is in contact with the department and following its advice on a daily basis. We are sharing this advice special editions of our eNews and to staff via email and our internal newsletter.

At this time, we have highly recommend to all the people living in our shared houses and to all employees that they reconsider/cancel any travel plans overseas and have requested that they advise us if they do travel overseas.

We request that families being supported in our community by our staff also inform us if they have travelled or plan to travel outside of Australia.

Currently, the government is requiring people returning from the following countries to self-quarantine for up to 14 days after returning to Australia.

  • China
  • Northern Italy
  • Iran
  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Mongolia

Identitywa staff may be required provide a Fit for Work medical certificate before they can return to work.

Marina Re, Chief Executive Officer
