Covid -19 Update

As you are aware there have been multiple identified public exposures to COVID-19 in the Barwon area.
CODA supports the social distancing model and is taking steps to minimise the impact of the virus on the services we provide to local people.

These steps include:
• Reviewing our policies, procedures and action plans in line with the information from appropriate health authorities
• Avoiding unnecessary face to face meetings
• Limiting travel to essential appointments only
• Supporting staff and clients to regularly undertake the recommended personal hygiene and other cleaning strategies

CODA will be following the advice and direction of the federal and state governments with regards to client and staff health and safety.
CODA will contact clients directly if their service is going to change in anyway.
