How ECLC is helping flatten the Coronavirus curve
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving very rapidly and Eastern Community Legal Centre (ECLC) is adapting quickly to help stop the spread of the highly infectious disease and assist in ‘flattening the curve’.
As well as monitoring and following government guidelines, ECLC decided to close its physical offices and outreach visits and relocated staff and volunteers to work from home.
ECLC is using phone or other technology to connect and communicate with clients, community, partners and each other. All external in-person meetings and partnership work has been moved to use of technology or postponed.
ECLC is extensively upgrading its information and communications technology to enable staff to work responsively and efficiently.
ECLC will continue to take proactive steps to address this crisis.
The Australian Government has enforced a wide range of strict rules that have changed the way businesses across the country can operate, and it has asked all Australians and communities to change the way they live and work.
Whether at work or home, all Australians must now:
- practise good hygiene
- practise social distancing
- follow the limits for public gatherings
- understand how and when to self-isolate.
