Worksafe VIC have also released a guide on how to plan for a pandemic. A statement from the Victorian Government:
‘It’s important to remember that while this is a new virus, we have experience with similar viruses, as well as the pandemic flu and much of that planning and preparation can be applied here.
Our health system is well prepared to manage infectious disease outbreaks like this and all hospitals, health services and GPs are aware of the protocols.
We’re doing everything we can to keep the community safe and will continue providing regular updates to ensure all Victorians have the latest advice on what they can do to stop the spread of this virus.’
