CTG Day 2020 Event Update: Postponed

CTG Day 2020 has been postponed

At the direction of the Communicable Disease Control Branch of SA Health, we must unfortunately confirm the rescheduling of this year’s Closing the Gap Day event due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) concerns.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety of our staff, partners and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

Although the CTG Day 2020 has been postponed, details will be announced regarding the event’s rescheduling later in the year.

Protecting yourself and others

Coping and mental health support

It’s normal to feel stress and worry when there is a health event that is affecting people’s wellbeing in the community. For information on coping and mental health support see SA Health’s Mental Health and COVID-19 Fact Sheet.
