This afternoon the Victorian state government announced the easing of the 5-day snap lockdown from 11.59pm Wednesday 17 February.
As a result all Windermere sites will reopen and all in person/face to face appointments will return, with some restrictions.
A reminder that masks still remain mandatory indoors and outdoors where social distancing is not possible. All staff will be wearing masks for all indoor appointments and we encourage you to do the same. If you are unable to wear a mask indoors, our staff might suggest an alternative location for your appointment.
What happens now?
Should you have had any in-person/face to face appointments cancelled or rescheduled last week due to the lockdown, your case worker, if they haven’t already, will be in touch with you to reschedule and confirm.
As always we will continue to monitor the situation and take advice from the government and relevant authorities and keep you updated with any new information as it arises.
Should you have any questions, concerns or need to contact any of our team please call 1300 946 337.
Our ELC and kindergarten in Frankston and Family Day Care services remain open.
Everyone's health and safety is our utmost priority and we have strict hygiene controls in place at these venues. We ask that if your child is displaying any signs of illness to please keep them home.
Thank you for your understanding in this difficult time. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all work our way through this uncertainty.
We continue to monitor the advice from the Australian Government and relevant authorities and will review arrangements as appropriate.
All decisions shall be made with great consideration and in the interest of the health and wellbeing of the community, so that when this all passes we can return to our usual service delivery practices.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all work our way through this uncertainty.
