Anglicare Tasmania has screening procedures at our offices and other facilities as part of important public health measures to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
We continue to monitor information and act on advice from the Australian Government Department of Health about this respiratory illness outbreak.
We also receive regular updates from relevant peak bodies including Aged and Community Services Australia and National Disability Services, and statements made by the Director of Public Health at the Tasmanian Department of Health
Anyone who visits an Anglicare Tasmania site will be asked to tell us if they have recently returned from overseas or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
For the most up to date information and resources about coronavirus please visit www.health.gov.au. This website has the latest medical advice and official reports about COVID-19.
There are precautions we can all take to help to slow the spread of viral illnesses. This is done by washing your hands often with soap and water, and using a tissue or elbow to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, then disposing of the tissue in a rubbish bin.
If you have concerns about your health, speak to a doctor or call the Public Health Hotline 1800 671 738 for advice.
