CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
At Charity Bounce we take the health and well being of our staff and community very seriously. Over the last few weeks, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely to ensure we are doing everything we can to minimise the risk to staff and program participants.
This is a rapidly changing situation and we have been carefully reviewing all of our programs and procedures to ensure we develop careful and measured responses. It is a challenging time for all of us, and there are many people that have been affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19, including the staff, volunteers, and young people involved in our programs.
As the the global pandemic continues to escalate, it has become clear that moving forward with our programs and events as scheduled would have the potential to expose COVID-19 to the participants, staff, and partners involved.
Therefore Charity Bounce will be taking the following measures to ensure the safety of our community:
- Basketball resiliency and school programs will be cancelled until further notice.
- Central Australia program trips have been cancelled to protect vulnerable communities until further notice.
- Bounce Academy individual and small group programs are currently being reviewed based on government directives and partner restrictions, with strict health and hygiene protocols now in place.
From this week onwards, most staff, volunteers and board members will be working from home until we deem it safe to return to our normal office arrangements. Any scheduled meetings will now happen over the phone or via video link.
We are in the process of establishing online systems for remote program and service delivery and will communicate regarding the availability as this is established.
