24 AugCOVID hygiene and safety
With the threat of the highly contagious Delta variant, good hygiene practices and readiness to respond to an outbreak are critical. Resources to support all services to maintain a COVID Safe environment can be found through ELAA’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Frequently Asked Questions, including information about having a COVID Safe Plan.
Services should follow procedures set out in their Infectious Diseases Policy. If you have purchased our PolicyWorks subscription and don’t have an Infectious Diseases Policy you can access a policy template through PolicyWorks by logging into the member’s section of the ELAA website . If you don’t have a PolicyWorks subscription you can subscribe here. As required by the National Law and Regulations governing all early childhood education and care services, you must report a confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID 19) at your service.
