As you know, Kinaway Chamber of Commerce has many member organisations and corporate partners working across different areas with different clients and stakeholders.

Our staff are taking the necessary precautions to #stopthespread, this means lots of Zoom meetings and phone calls to our members and partners. We are still operating close to full capacity and are pivoting our support to a more mobile and digital offering.

Please join us in stopping the spread, so we can get back to seeing you all face to face sooner rather than later. We also understand that some people in our community are more vulnerable to disease, and so, here are our guidelines for you, your staff and clients.

Kinaway COVID 19 Guidelines

 

 

If any you, your staff or immediate family or household members, have travelled through any of the higher risk and moderate risk countries that the Department of Health identifies at any time, the advice we have been given is that they must immediately isolate themselves and work from home for 14 days from the date of their return. They should only return to work if at the end of 14 days self-isolation they are showing no symptoms;

If any you, your staff or immediate family or household members develop any of the identified symptoms, they should seek immediate medical attention. They should not return to work until they have a medical certificate clearing them for work;

If any you, your staff or immediate family or household members have contact with a person with suspected COVID-19, they should immediately isolate themselves and work from home for 14 days. They should only return to work if at the end of 14 days self-isolation they are showing no symptoms, or earlier if the suspected case has been confirmed as having tested negative for COVID-19;

If any you, your staff or immediate family or household members have contact someone with confirmed COVID-19, they should immediately isolate themselves and work from home for 14 days. They should not go back to work until they are declared medically fit and have provided a medical clearance certifying them free of COVID-19.

The Commonwealth Government has announced a “cash flow” stimulus package for small to medium business owners. I am dissecting this as we speak and will email further information this afternoon.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you would like to discuss any of the above or if we can assist you or your organisation in any way.

To stay up to date with the latest facts on coronavirus the Victorian State Governments Health and Human Services website has plenty of resources.
