Given the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 now in the Northern Territory, staff, clients and any other visitors must wear a mask while in any Congress town or remote clinic. This includes headspace, Ingkintja and Alukura.
This important safety measure is in place to decrease the chance of spreading the virus in the community, and to protect clients and staff.
Staff and clients must also wear masks must in Congress vehicles (unless a staff member is alone in the vehicle).
During home/client visits, Congress staff will wear a mask, and will have masks available for clients.
