As the situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Australia and around the world continues to rapidly evolve, RIDBC is committed to keeping you informed.
The wellbeing and safety of our clients, staff and the broader community is our highest priority.
RIDBC continues to operate all our sites around Australia, implementing extra safeguards in place to minimise the spread of this virus.
We are here to support our clients to access our services but unfortunately COVID-19 is having an impact. At this moment, a small number of our services have been impacted, as the Government recommended guidelines tighten.
What’s changed as a result of COVID-19?
For the safety of RIDBC people, our clients and stakeholders:
- A small number of RIDBC's services that are conducted outside of our centres have been suspended during this time, any client directly impacted will be contacted
- Services provided within local school and pre-school environments continues in each of the schools and preschools that are allowing visiting staff
- We’ve moved to delivering many of our professional education programs online; and
- We’ve significantly reduced the number of non-essential people visiting our sites and services
While our sites remain open and operational, we’re exercising additional hygiene and screening measures to ensure everyone’s safety. We are doing all we can to make sure we contribute to reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Our focus remains to support our clients, the broader community and each other. Now and always. We are working hard to explore alternate methods of service delivery if things worsen and we are reviewing the situation daily.
Detailed information about COVID-19, who is at risk, travel restrictions and increased hygiene measures can be found on the Commonwealth Department of Health website.
We understand that these are uncertain times for many people. We will continue to monitor developments closely and communicate with you on a regular basis.
