GUNDITJMARA ABORIGINAL COOPERATIVE
COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT - IMPORTANT
On behalf of the board and management, we would like to advise of the following actions in response to the Coronavirus.
Gunditjmara continues to enact its Pandemic Plan and our dedicated committee monitors all developments and changes. We understand that this may cause some disruption, however, the safety of our community and staff is our number one priority. As government policy changes we will continue to adjust our services accordingly and update you as we go. We are taking all precautions to ensure our staff are protected so we are able to provide reduced services in a safe manner.
Our Medical Centre is still operating as per normal and we have implemented extra screening procedures. We continue to support our community, especially our older people and those who experience chronic disease. Occasionally staff may need to wear full protective clothing, there is no need to be alarmed by this.
Vaccination clinics are now running so contact us for the next session.
