Dear South Gippsland Landcarers, Friends and Colleagues,
In light of the continuing and escalating challenges of dealing with the Covid-19 Pandemic, the South Gippsland Landcare Network Inc. Board adopted an Epidemic/Pandemic Policy at its Board meeting held on Friday 13 March (attached).
The Board wishes to protect our Landcare community, staff, stakeholders and the general public in South Gippsland. The Board has endorsed the use of the Infection Control Measures and Social Isolation as advised by the Commonwealth’s Chief Medical Officer.
To this end, the Board has decided to have SGLN staff work from home if possible and for all public SGLN meetings and events to be postponed or held using virtual meeting methods such as webinars or Zoom.
SGLN is in consultation with our project funders and partners to find the most suitable way to progress projects that keeps everyone safe and well.
For the safety of Landcarers and the community, SGLN asks that the 15 Landcare groups in South Gippsland adopt a similar Pandemic Policy for your activities.
SGLN will continue to produce its seasonal Network Notes and endeavour to keep you informed on SGLN’s activities and programs. Please send us pictures and articles about your Landcare projects on your farms and any interesting or unusual nature and wildlife sightings.
Also let us know how your Landcare group and members are dealing with the pandemic.
Best Wishes in these challenging times,
Chair, South Gippsland Landcare Network Inc. Board
