A Handy Hint about Facemasks
As it can be challenging to remember that a facemask must be worn every time you leave your apartment; a suggestion would be to place your facemask near your keys and swipe card. With time it will become a habit to pick them all up.
It is essential, at all times for all our safety that face masks are worn as soon as you leave your apartment.

Apartment Cleaning
With the introduction of Stage 4 Restrictions all residents that have external private cleaning services coming to their apartment must now suspend these services immediately to comply with the latest State Government restrictions.
If you are currently receiving personal care service via a Home Care package provider or DVA (for example assistance with showering, administrating assistance with medication and the like) you are still able to utilise these services.
