As a result of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the introduction of the South Australian Government’s Test, Trace, Isolate and Quarantine (TTIQ) model, Red Wagon Workplace Solutions has reassessed its risk measures for COVID exposure.
Red Wagon Workplace Solutions has decided that all visitors entering the Red Wagon office for any reason or attending any Red Wagon event, must be double COVID-19 vaccinated if they are eligible to do so.
From Tuesday 23 November, visitors and contractors will need to show their COVID-19 Digital Certificate on their smart device OR provide personal photo identification and a printed immunisation certificate.
Those with a SA Health approved medical exemption will need to show their certificate of exemption and provide a negative COVID-19 test result that is no older than 72 hours.
Enforcing mandatory vaccination is not something that Red Wagon Workplace Solutions takes lightly; we respect the personal decisions of our clients; however, we believe it is our duty to protect our staff, families, clients, and the wider community wherever possible.
Red Wagon Workplace Solutions would like to provide confidence to all clients that they are entering a COVID safe environment. If you are currently un-vaccinated and do not intend to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please advise one of our team.
These measures will continue until further notice, we acknowledge that this is a dynamic situation, and we will continue assess in line with Government advice.
Should you require more information, please contact our team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
What type of proof of vaccination do Red Wagon Workplace Solutions staff require prior to meeting clients?
Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination can be provided in a range of ways:
- Download your COVID-19 digital certificate via the Express Plus Medicare mobile app or your Medicare online account through myGov
- Add your COVID digital certificate to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay
- Instructions available on the Services Australia website
- Your vaccination provider may be able to print your immunisation history statement for you
- You can call the Australian Immunisation Register and ask for your statement to be sent to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post
- If you’re not eligible for Medicare, call the Australian Immunisation Register and request your certificate be mailed to you or add your COVID certificate to your digital wallet using the Individual Healthcare Identifiers service (IHI service) through myGov
What can I do to protect myself against the spread of COVID-19?
You can reduce the risk of getting COVID-19 or passing it on to others by:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water. This includes before and after eating and after going to the toilet
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser when you can’t use soap and water
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Clean and disinfect surfaces you use often such as desks, benchtops, and doorknobs
- Clean and disinfect objects you use often such as mobile phones, keys, wallets, and work passes
- Maintaining appropriate social distancing where possible
- Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze
- Stay home if you feel unwell
What do I do if I think I may have come into contact with a person(s) who has COVID-19?
If you believe you have come in contact with someone who has COVID-19 and/or suspect they may have COVID-19, it is important that you go and get tested for COVID-19. After your test, go straight home and self-isolate while you wait for your test result as directed by SA Health.
What if I don’t feel well and have cold and/or flu like symptoms?
If you have any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 which can include a fever (a temperature of 37.5°C or higher) or chills, cough, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, tiredness (fatigue), runny or blocked nose, even if mild, you must get tested for COVID-19 as soon as symptoms appear and obtain a negative result.
