Sonder’s Coronavirus Response
In line with strategies employed and recommended by the Australian Government, Sonder has implemented precautionary strategies at our Sonder and headspace Centres (Adelaide, Edinburgh North and Onkaparinga) in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
These initiatives are advised by the Federal Government’s official statements and will of course be updated as the situation evolves.
- Cancelling non-essential events and gatherings
- Minimising work meetings
- Introducing COVID-19 screening processes across our services
- Putting work-at-home provisions in place
- Reducing the delivery of non-critical face-to-face service but continuing to work face-to-face with some clients where appropriate
- Restricting visitor access
- Putting staff leave provisions in place to provide security
These strategies will ensure a safe environment for staff and clients, whilst ensuring the continuity of care for clients.
Sonder will continue to monitor the global, national and South Australian situation regarding COVID-19 and act upon information released by the Australian Federal Government and each of the various State Governments.
We look forward to updating you as these strategies change in the future and appreciate your understanding as we all continue to adapt to this ever-changing circumstance.
