Update from 5 May 2022

Over the last few weeks’, the South Australian Government has further relaxed some of the rules relating to COVID-19 isolation periods and mask wearing to align with those in other states.

As an organisation we are continuing to follow all of the current COVID-19 guidelines as advised by SA Health. In support of this we would kindly ask that if you are not feeling well then please do not attend appointments at any ECH site or let us know so that services can be rescheduled if required.

For the most up to date information and advice relating to COVID-19 please see the SA Health website.

The health and safety of our clients, residents and staff remains our top priority, so to protect the ECH community you will see many of our staff continuing to wear masks. We would also encourage social distancing wherever possible and good hand hygiene.

In addition as of Thursday 6 May 2022 you will no longer need to scan a QR code, or sign in when entering an ECH site as this is no longer required.

Watch our short videos below to see what precautions we have put in place to deal with COVID-19 as well as find out how we’ve been supporting our clients and residents during this time.
