Roadmap to COVIDSafe Australia

Prime Minister Morrison’s announcement of a three stage COVID-Safe reopening of the economy is welcome news for all Australians.

This agreement by National Cabinet sets out a sensible roadmap, which will be implemented by the State & Territory Governments.

However, the Prime Minister has warned it comes with risks of increased cases of infection.

To combat these risks and to ensure your staff, sites and customers are kept safe it is important we all remember to physical distance, wash our hands and stay home if feeling unwell.

In addition, infection prevention and control services by firms like the Martin Brothers and further measures such as record-keeping or downloading the COVIDSafe App will be vital to ensure swift contact tracing can be undertaken if needed.
