You will no doubt have heard news about the outbreak of the Coronavirus in China, including current reports of five confirmed cases in Australia. Most reported cases have been people who have been in Wuhan, China.

RIDBC encourages our clients and staff to read and follow the advice from the Commonwealth Department of Health regarding the Coronavirus. This advice can be found by clicking on the Department of Health link here.

If required, State based Health Departments also have comprehensive information available on their websites.

  • New South Wales, Department of Health link here.

  • Australian Capital Territory, Department of Health link here.

  • Victoria, Health and Human Services link here.

  • Queensland, Department of Health link here.

  • Northern Territory, Department of Health link here.

At the current time, it is very unlikely that a person could develop the Coronavirus infection unless they have travelled to an affected area in China in the 14 days before they have become unwell.

In line with Government recommendations, we are requesting if you, or your children/dependents have visited China in the last two weeks do not attend your appointment, school or program until 14 days have lapsed since you departed China.

If you need to cancel an RIDBC appointment, or will not be attending school or a program, please notify the appropriate service.

RIDBC is monitoring developments closely. Thank you for your support with this matter.
