We would like to take this moment to update you on the IHEA’s response to COVID-19, including how activities are being coordinated, and remind everyone that the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 is available on your respective states’ health entities and the Commonwealth’s Department of Health site.
The IHEA board believes that Australia is very well prepared to deal with COVID-19 and has implemented a suite of measures over and above those recommended by the World Health Organization to help stop the spread of the virus and protect Australians. With this in mind the board is taking a highly precautionary approach based on the latest and best medical advice and is strongly suggesting that all meetings, development days and similar events are either postponed or held via Skype, Zoom or teleconference.
Planning will continue for the national conference to be held in Perth in September, regular updates will be provided as this work progresses.
As further information becomes available we will also provide updates on the IHEA website.
