28 June 2021- Kokatha Aboriginal Corporation COVID-19 Safety Measures
Kokatha Aboriginal Corporation (KAC) continues to manage the COVID-19 threat in accordance with current government advice and requirements, whilst also taking a precautionary approach to ensure as much protection of staff and community members as possible.
The state government has today announced a Public Activities Update which includes additional COVID-19 restrictions in response to a “very significant” deterioration in the COVID–19 situation across Australia. In addition to the recent increase in border restriction it is clear that the government view it as imperative at this time of increased risk to take “decisive action so we can continue to keep our state safe and the economy strong”. Of course, KAC’s first priority remains the wellbeing of Kokatha people and KAC staff.
As such, from 29 June 2021 until further notice, KAC will reinstitute the majority of measures successfully put in place during 2020. That is:
- Corporate travel must still be pre approved by managers, but non essential travel will not be approved
- Face to face meetings, gathering and events are to be postponed or transitioned to a virtual format
- Essential KMS staff will continue to adhere to precautionary Carrapateena site restrictions
- Pastoral Staff will continue to adhere to their COVID safe plan, including the requirement to advise the station manager Kenny Davis of visits on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0492 598 005
- Our Flinders Terrace and Yon St offices will continue to follow the social distancing guidelines and venue limits outlined in on site signage at all times. If you are unclear about these limits please contact:
- All staff, community members and visitors are reminded not to attend these venues if feeling unwell
