To all Parents / Carers,

The Coronavirus Committee once again met today to discuss further updates. Flintwood is in the process of putting in place its Workforce Management Plan; we are trying to put a contingency plan in place in regards to staffing for the Coronavirus.

At this stage, nobody within Flintwood has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus. We are, however, planning should an outbreak occur.

The Coronavirus Committee is in the process of developing and maintaining a contact list for casual employees who are willing to work in any Supported Individual Living model (SIL – Accommodation) if a Participant is quarantined or has been diagnosed with Covid-19 virus. All infection control procedures will be in place and PPE equipment will be provided.

Can I also clarify with all Parents / Carers, we are asking you not to enter any Flintwood building. We are trying as much as possible to minimise the number of people entering the building. All drop-offs/ pickups will be from the front door.

I would also like to take this opportunity to put your mind at rest and assure you Flintwood has plentiful stocks of Personal Protective Equipment and Cleaning Products and are in constant communication with our suppliers who have told us there are no problems with ordering more supplies.

Thank you again for your support and understanding with this,

Yours Sincerely,

Kay McPartland

General Manager
