Non Contact arrangements to apply from 13/12/2021
On 7/12/2021, the QLD Government announced the relaxation of COVID19 restrictions, to take effect from Monday 13/12/2021.
To reduce the likelihood of QLD Stoma Association becoming an exposure site and and so that we can continue our very important work providing support to QLD Ostomates without disruption, the QSA Board have made the difficult decision to return to non contact collection arrangements from 13/12/2021. These arrangements will remain in place until the impact of reduced restrictions on local COVID infection rates is better understood. Most members who routinely collect their order from our rooms will be well familiar with our non-contact collection arrangements which have been used successfully during QLD’s many lockdown periods after the past 18 months to ensure that we can keep our members and workers safe, and continue to operate within a COVID safe environment.
Fully vaccinated members who require access to our rooms for support or to visit our Stomal Therapy Advisory Clinic will still be able to do so by appointment. Evidence of vaccination will be required prior to entry to our rooms. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these arrangements may cause but please understand that our priority has always been and will continue to be ensuring that our members can receive their essential medical supplies when they need them.
Thankyou to all for your understanding and support.
