Not-for-profit makes changes to protect those most at risk
AGED care and disability support not-for-profit STAR Community Services has updated their fleet to ensure safety for staff and clients during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
An automatic device has been fitted in every car, which will release an antibacterial formula in to the vehicle to protect against airborne pathogens.
General Manager Patsy Wilshire said the updates were part of a calm and calculated approach to the COVID-19 situation.
"We want to ensure that our clients, volunteers and staff are cared for and safe during this unprecedented time," she said.
"We have a Pandemic Response Management team led by an experienced emergency response manager," Mrs Wilshire said.
"Their function is to coordinate our Pandemic Plan, putting necessary precautions in place to ensure against the spread of COVID-19."
Drivers have also been provided with additional wipes and hand sanitiser, as well as postponed some client group activities.
