CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

17 March 2020

Comm Unity Plus Services is committed to the welfare of our local community, staff and students and has decided to implement strategies across all of our services and programs in the effort to prevent the spread of COVID 19 (Coronavirus).

Our Children’s Contact Service Centre will be suspending all Changeovers and Supervised Visits from Saturday the 21st of March 2020 for at least 2 weeks (there may be a chance of a longer extension, depending on the increase of the virus). All intake and assessments will occur via phone appointment or Zoom/Skype.

We are currently implementing blended delivery of our Education Programs to continue providing our services in the context of COVID 19. Options for home-based study will be communicated to all current students over the following couple of days.

Brimbank Melton Community Legal Centre will be conducting online and phone service delivery and all client-group clinics or workshops will be cancelled. Phone-based Duty Lawyering processes will be functioning based on the Courts.

All of our Neighbourhood House programs are discontinued for the duration of the term and school holidays.

We thank all of our clients, students and community members for your understanding and patience with our prevention procedures and we hope we can function normally once the pandemic is reduced. 

Please advise, you should consult with a medical professional immediately should you have:

  • Been in contact with confirmed cases of Novel Coronavirus.
  • Flu-like symptoms including a cough, fatigue or sore throat.
  • Travelled overseas within the past 2 weeks.
