As you would be aware the COVID-19 outbreak in the greater Brisbane area has expanded today with two clusters identified.
Last night we shared with you the updated directions regarding cross border travel and what to do if you have returned from City of Brisbane, Logan City, City of Ipswich, Moreton Bay Region and Redland City between 12.01am 20 March and 5pm 29 March.
As a reminder you are asked to:
- get a test as soon as possible and self-isolate until you receive a negative result
- contact your line manager and the Clinical Worker Health Service (contact details are below) for further advice and a risk assessment before returning to work.
- you will be required to get tested again on day 5 and day 13 after your arrival to South Australia.
Some clinical staff will still be required to self-isolate for the full 14 days even with a negative COVID-19 test result. It is important to make contact with Clinical Worker Health Service.
If you are self-isolating please complete the self-isolation form.
If are able to work effectively from home while you are self-isolating, please speak with your manager to make arrangements. You will need to complete a new working from home form.
Where flexible working arrangements are not possible, for the period of self-quarantine, the leave provisions outlined in the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment Determination 3.1: Supplementary Provisions for COVID-19 are applicable.
