What is COVID-19?

A coronavirus is a type of virus that sticks to lung cells, causing respiratory problems and sometimes viral pneumonia. Several strains of the common cold are coronaviruses, as are SARS and MERS. This current coronavirus, sometimes referred to as the “novel” coronavirus because it’s new — is officially known as SARS-CoV-2, and the illness it causes is COVID-19.

How is SASI keeping our people safe?

The health and wellbeing of SASI clients, failies and employees is at the corer of everything we do.

We are following the Australian Government Department of Health’s advice closely and have taken the following actions:

  • Enacted our Statewide Pandemic and COVID-19 Plan.
  • Implemented training for all employees about Infection Prevention and Control Procedures
  • Reminding everyone about good hygiene practice.
  • Ensured all sites have the necessary PPE supplies such as hand sanitiser, disinfectant wipes, gowns and masks.
  • Reminded staff to be vigilant in looking out for signs of the illness and reporting this swiftly.
  • Social distancing is in place as well as reducing in person contact and non -essential services.
  • Tracking via a Health Declaration form of everyone who works at, or visits, a SASI site.

We will continue to post updates via our website and email communication to keep you in the loop with all relevant information and changes to service delivery, and we encourage you to speak to your SASI contact if you require any further information.

What services are open? 

Due to the contagiousness of COVID-19, our active choice site at Seaford has been closed for some time. We are using this opportunity to revitalise the building and programs offered and will be back soon!
