Hartley’s Crisis Management Team (CMT) is currently reviewing the COVID Response Plan released by the ACT Government. Details of this plan can be found below. At this stage there is no new information that will drastically change Hartley Lifecare's current service delivery regarding COVID-19.
The nature of COVID-19 means that we must remain flexible and readily able to respond to the changing circumstances of the pandemic. That’s why, there will be a number of check points along the way so that each stage of the easing of restrictions can be assessed before moving to the next, ensuring the health and safety of our clients and the community.
To date, our COVID-19 Response Plan (Version 1) has served us well and provided us with clear strategies to guide us through the past 4 months. Moving forward, to ensure that the information, advice, protocols and facts provided to our clients, staff, volunteers and other stakeholders about COVID-19 is accurate, current and in accordance to the latest government and medical advice, Hartley's Crisis Management Team have now updated its COVID-19 Response Plan and have launched Hartley’s COVID-19 Response Plan (Version 2).
