Colony 47 is COVID-19 prepared
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a viral infection that is currently having a global impact in terms of the speed of its spread across the world. Tasmania has not been isolated from the spread of this virus that has caused large numbers of people to become unwell and a large number of deaths across the world. Our first priority in working with people is to focus on their health, safety and wellbeing. With this in mind, we have developed a four stage approach in providing our services in ways that can keep people safe, healthy and well in the advent of increased prevalence of COVID-19 in our community. Whilst we are aware that there has been a long period where there have been no cases in the state we must remain vigilant.
At Stage 1 we will keep our offices open and people will experience the same services but with increased levels of hygiene and social distancing in place.
At Stage 2 people will be able to access our services through limited face to face options and primarily through phone and information technology options.
At Stage 3 people will be able to access our services but only through phone and information technology options.
At Stage 4 people may have services modified due to the lack of availability of technology or staff and we will provide people with specific instructions on how services can continue to be provided at that time.
Our commitment through this time is to maintain the services that people need. Whilst the pandemic may impact on people being able to access offices and the availability of staff from time to time please be assured we will be there for you and will respond when we can to your need.
