We're reproduced (below) the contents of a letter sent to all Omnicare clients, relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.As the coronavirus continues to make headline news around the world, we’d like to take this opportunity to assure you we, at Omnicare, have been monitoring the situation for several weeks. We have the wellbeing of our clients and their primary carers, volunteers and staff as a priority. Omnicare has been following all government guidelines on the virus as they relate to organisations and individuals will continue to do so, implementing any official measures to address this public health issue. We’ve also been taking advice from business bodies, particularly in the aged and disability support sector. We’ve also updated our emergency procedures manual to include a contingency for any outbreaks of major diseases. Among the measures we’ve implemented is ensuring all Omnicare sites provide hand sanitiser for use by anyone entering the premises. This is a measure that was already in operation across our 14 Mid North Coast sites prior to this outbreak. We’re also displaying NSW Department of Health posters with advice on symptoms and how best to stop the risk of infection. Our staff have been told not to come to work if they suspect they have contracted coronavirus; if they’ve travelled from any country where the virus has spread; or if they believe they’ve been exposed to potential infection in the community. We’re confident we’re doing as much as we can as an organisation to prevent clients, carers, our volunteers and staff coming into contact with COVID-19. It’s important for the wellbeing of all our clients, carers, volunteers and staff that we know of any potential infection among those groups. If you’ve travelled abroad and/or if you’ve experienced these symptoms: fever, dry cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, please seek medical assistance and call 1300 336 488 to keep us informed. We want to stress there is no need to panic. However, it is important everyone in the community does what they can to limit spread of the coronavirus. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’ve any questions or concerns.
