Invitation to DHS COVID-19 NGO online forum

Dear sector colleagues,

We are working hard as a state to manage and contain any risks from the spread of COVID-19 in Victoria. The State Government has imposed some restrictions from midnight tonight, including capping people allowed at home gatherings at 10, down from 50.

I know that many of you have questions about how we manage the risk in our state, and how you can best protect and support your clients and staff.

DHS will hold an online forum on Thursday August 6, 2020 for the NGO sector to provide more information and respond to questions.

The panel will include:

  • SA Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicola Spurrier
  • SA Pathology Clinical Service Director Dr Tom Dodd
  • South Australia Police Assistant Commissioner Noel Bamford

The online forum will be held via the Zoom platform on Thursday August 6 from 2.30pm. The forum can be accessed by clicking on this link:

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions during the session.

If you would like to discuss any concerns, please contact DHS's COVID-19 Response Team at 0407 320 903 or at

Best regards,

Lois Boswell
Acting Chief Executive
