    The Governor of South Australia has approved a further 28-day extension of the existing Declaration of a Major Emergency under the Emergency Management Act 2004 in respect to the outbreak of COVID-19, commencing on 1 May 2021.

    Under this Act, the State Coordinator, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens, enacts the South Australian Directions that apply to everyone living in and entering, South Australia.

    Flu Vaccination: By 1 June 2021, all staff and visitors to a RACF must be vaccinated against 2021 seasonal influenza. Existing exemption criteria continue to apply.

    • The Emergency Management (Public Activities No 24) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 came into effect on 7 May 2021 and revokes the Emergency Management (Public Activities No 23) (COVID-19) Direction 2021. This applies to Retirement Living and Community Services. You can view this direction by clicking here.

    We will continue to advise residents and clients about the latest government directives. This includes restrictions on visiting and activities at residential sites, and how home care services that we provide in people’s homes and service locations, may be impacted.
