SOCAP Member events and COVID-19

Tuesday 10, Mar 2020

Drawing directly on current Australian Government advice, SOCAP is proceeding to deliver scheduled meetings and events, including the March Customer Vulnerability Forums and training programs.

As of 8th March 2020, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) advises that the risk to the general Australian population from COVID-19 is low, with the majority of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Australia in returned travellers. "At this time the AHPPC consider that public events should proceed, but strongly recommend that people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms should not attend public events or gatherings. This is particularly so for people who have recently travelled from overseas".

SOCAP will provide updates as may be required or enquires can be made to socap@socap.org.au
