Staff Vaccinations: COVID-19 and Influenza

COVID-19 Vaccination

Calvary strongly encourages all staff to have the COVID -19 Vaccination.

  • All healthcare workers are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccination
  • All people aged over 50 are also now eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccination
  • Vaccinations can be sourced through Commonwealth Vaccination and state and territory vaccination clinics.
  • Please use the Department of Health Eligibility Checker link to find the nearest vaccination service to you. Click here.

Influenza Vaccination

  • The seasonal Influenza vaccine remains very important this year, particularly for people who are working for and with health and aged care organisations.
  • We encourage every person to be vaccinated against Influenza, taking into consideration the 14 days recommended gap between the Influenza Vaccination and any COVID-19 Vaccination.

 

COVID-19 Travel Restrictions – Advice to Employees

The COVID-19 situation in Australia can change quickly and is expected to continue to evolve. Accordingly, Calvary advises all employees to monitor the advice of their respective government authorities before travel to or from any potentially affected jurisdiction for changes to restrictions and requirements on a regular basis.

  • For employees who travel to a COVID-19 area of heightened risk or any future affected jurisdiction before identified by the relevant state or territory government and must undertake quarantine on your return, special Coronavirus leave may be used. Proof of visit to the area of heightened risk must be provided to your Manager.
  • For employees who have chosen to travel to a COVID-19 area of heightened risk or any future affected jurisdiction after it is identified by the relevant state or territory government, you will be required to use annual leave in the first instance if required to undertake quarantine upon your return. Where paid personal and carers leave and annual leave are not available, the period will be unpaid leave.

As the situation in Australia evolves, state and territory governments are regularly updating their requirements for those returning to their jurisdictions. This will also be the case for any future unforseen outbreaks in other states or territories.

For the latest updates, please monitor the website of your jurisdiction on a regular basis:

 


Clinical FAQs

Description

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory infections. These can range from the common cold to more serious diseases.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. It was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan City in China.

Other diseases caused by coronaviruses include Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

There is much more to learn about how SARS-CoV-2 is spread, its severity, and other features associated with the virus; epidemiological and clinical investigations are ongoing.

Outbreaks of new coronavirus infections among people are always a public health concern. The situation is evolving rapidly.


What are the Case Definitions?

The case definition defined by the Communicable Diseases Network Australia (CDNA) and endorsed by the Australian Health Protection Principle Committee (AHPPC) changes frequently for COVID-19.

The current case definitions are available from the “Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units” and this document is updated frequently by the CDNA.

Released Friday 24 April 2020, there are important changes to the Department’s advice concerning the case definition of suspect cases.

To ensure you have the most up to date information see the latest CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units at the link below:

CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units

 

What are the Symptoms?

Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly.

People with coronavirus may experience:

  • fever
  • coughing
  • sore throat
  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath
  • Atypical symptoms of COVID-19 may also occur including chest pain, and conjunctivitis
  • other reported symptoms of COVID-19 include: loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhoea, acute blocked nose (congestion), nausea / vomiting and loss of appetite.

If you are concerned you may have COVID-19 please seek medical advice by telephone.

You can also use the information below.

If you are sick and think you might have COVID-19, check your symptoms using healthdirect’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) use the symptom checker.


How is the virus spread?

The virus can spread from person to person through:

  • close contact with an infectious person (including in the 24 hours before they started showing symptoms)
  • contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze
  • touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face
  • breathing in small particles (aerosols) that may remain suspended or be recirculated for longer periods in poorly ventilated, crowded indoor environments

Calvary is strongly encouraging all staff have the COVID-19 Vaccination.

  • Vaccinations can be sourced through Commonwealth Vaccination and state and territory vaccination clinics.
  • Please use the Department of Health Eligibility Checker link to find the nearest vaccination service to you. Click here

Testing

Individuals with any of the known COVID symptoms should be tested for SARS-CoV-2, regardless of vaccination status.
Once tested you should stay at home until a negative test is returned or symptoms have resolved, whichever is longer.

Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily, and others may get very sick very quickly.

People with coronavirus may experience:

  • fever
  • coughing
  • sore throat
  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath
  • Atypical symptoms of COVID-19 may also occur including chest pain, and conjunctivitis other reported symptoms of COVID-19 include: loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, muscle pain, joint pain, diarrhoea, acute blocked nose (congestion), nausea / vomiting and loss of appetite

Testing following a possible vaccine-related adverse event

Following your vaccine, if you develop fever, headache, fatigue or other mild systemic symptoms within and lasting for less than 48 hours after receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine in the absence of respiratory symptoms (including loss of smell), it is more likely that you have an expected vaccine response and testing may not be required (providing you don’t meet any of the criteria for being a suspect case). However, staff must not attend work while experiencing these symptoms and should use Personal and Carers leave in the first instance.

Healthcare workers with influenza-like illness should not work while they are symptomatic. They should be tested for SARS-CoV-2 and undergo isolation pending results. Healthcare workers who are defined as close contacts should be treated as such.

If you are concerned you may have COVID-19 please seek medical advice by telephone and you can also use the information below

You can also refer to the latest CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units to determine which cases need testing.

General principles

What precautions do I need to use?
  • Standard precautions, including hand hygiene (5 Moments) for all patients with respiratory infections. Patients and staff should observe cough etiquette and respiratory hygiene.
  • Standard and Transmission-based precautions for patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19:
    • For healthcare workers providing direct patient care or working within the patient/client /resident zone of individuals with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, the choice between the different types of Transmission-based precautions (i.e. contact, droplet and airborne precautions) should be based on an assessment of risk of transmission.
    • Assessment of risk of transmission of COVID-19 to healthcare workers should include consideration of:
      • the individual patient/client/resident’s pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19,
      • patient/client/resident factors,
      • nature of the care episode,
      • physical location of care.
How do I do physical distancing at work?

Be 1.5m (2 big steps) away from other people whenever you can. There is no inference that you can do social distancing with patients, we use standard & transmission based precautions for all patient care tasks and that hasn’t changed.

Can I use the staff/tea room?

Yes. You will see we have rearranged some of the furniture in our staff/tea rooms to help with social distancing during breaks. It’s okay to use the supplied cutlery and return it to the kitchen for the commercial washers. If you bring sandwiches from home or purchase from the Café, be sure you wash your hands immediately before and after you use your fingers to eat. Wash up items brought from home, at home, or use hot water and detergent and dry with paper towel. If your area has reusable cups bring in a personal one from home and keep it in your locker, or use a kitchen issued one and put it in the dirty kitchen tray – never rinse and put back in the cupboard!

Can I bring in food to share?

All staff must refrain from sharing food. We should not be bring food into share for tea rooms. No packets where fingers need to be used. No sharing of chips or lollies or any shared food at this time.

Do I need to wear hospital supplied scrubs?

No. There is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 is spread by contamination of staff uniforms. Staff uniforms are routinely required to be changed daily, including outerwear items (vests/utility pouches/lanyards) and enable compliance with bare-below-the-elbows. Home laundering on a hot cycle with detergent remains sufficient.

What are the most important things to remember?
  • Clean your hands.
  • Avoid touching your face and remind others when they do.
  • Keep your distance from other people without personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Use appropriate PPE when caring for patients.
  • Take care of ourselves and loved ones, our patients and theirs, and each other.

Use of masks at Calvary

17 June 2021

  1. For healthcare workers providing direct patient care or working within the patient/client /resident zone of individuals with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, the choice between P2/N95 respirator (used for airborne precautions) or surgical mask (used for droplet precautions) should be based on an assessment of risk of transmission.
  2. Assessment of risk of transmission of COVID-19 to healthcare workers should include consideration of:
    • the individual patient/client/resident’s pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19,
    • patient/client/resident factors,
    • nature of the care episode,
    • physical location of care.
  1. Consider the following during the decision making process:Patient/client/resident pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19 – Consider:
      1. Known COVID-19 status (i.e. suspected vs confirmed positive vs tested negative)
      2. Symptoms consistent with COVID-19
      3. Current prevalence and transmission of COVID-19 in the community
      4. Whether there are unlinked cases of COVID-19 in the community
      5. The presence of epidemiological risk factors for COVID-19, such as:
        1. Close contact, or secondary close contact, with a person with confirmed COVID-19 in the previous 14 days
        2. Return from international travel in the previous 14 days, particularly from countries with high prevalence of COVID-19, but excluding green zone countries
        3. Attendance at a currently designated COVID-19 exposure risk site in the previous 14 days
        4. Residence in, or travel through, a geographically localised area with elevated prevalence or community transmission of COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.

    Patient/client/resident factors – Consider:

      1. Potential for behaviours that increase the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission (e.g. patients/clients/residents with cognitive impairment, are unable to cooperate, or exhibit challenging behaviours, coughing, screaming or increased work of breathing).
      2. Ability/appropriateness of the patient/client/resident to wear a surgical mask.

    Nature of the care episode – Consider:

      1. Duration and proximity of contact between healthcare worker and individual
      2. Types of care that may increase the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission (e.g. Aerosol Generating Procedures incl. cough inducing, respiratory treatments/procedures).

    Physical location – Consider:

      1. The presence of multiple individuals with suspected/confirmed COVID-19 in an enclosed space
      2. Whether the environment has low levels of ventilation or unexpected air movements which may facilitate wider distribution of droplets and/or aerosols in the air (e.g. opening of doors between spaces of differential air pressure or temperature)
      3. Complex or less controlled care settings, including transport, home or community-based care.
  2. Likely high-risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission: Healthcare workers providing direct care or working within the patient/client/resident zone of individuals where assessment suggests a high-risk of transmission, should use P2/N95 respirators rather than surgical masks, along with the other PPE required for Standard, Contact and Airborne Precautions as specified in the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare (2021).
  3. Likely low-risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission: Healthcare workers providing direct patient care or working within the patient/client/resident zone for individuals where assessment suggests a low risk of transmission, should use PPE in accordance with existing guidance for Standard, Contact and Droplet Precautions as specified in the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare (2021). This may include the use of a surgical mask, gloves, gown and eye protection, depending on the indications for use.

Risk Assessment Examples:

Scenario: Risk Assessment Process: Risk
Staff member enter the single bedroom of a suspected COVID-19 patient/resident to deliver a meal.

The patient/resident has symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19. The patient/resident is compliant with the use of hand hygiene and tolerating the use of a surgical mask during episodes of care.

There is no COVID-19 cases in the facility or community. There are no epidemiological risk factors of concern.

The individual patient/client/resident’s pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19 = LOW RISK

 

The patient/client/resident factors = LOW RISK

 

The nature of the care episode = LOW RISK

 

Physical location = LOW RISK

Likely low risk

 

Healthcare worker to comply with Standard, Contact and Droplet Precautions (incl. use of a surgical mask)

Another staff member enter the room of the above mentioned patient/resident to perform an Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP) on the patient/resident.

The patient/resident need to remove his/her surgical mask during the episode of care.

The individual patient/client/resident’s pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19 = LOW RISK

 

The patient/client/resident factors = HIGH RISK

 

The nature of the care episode = HIGH RISK

 

Physical location = LOW RISK

Likely high risk

 

Healthcare worker to comply with Standard, Contact and Airborne Precautions (incl. use of a P2/N95 mask)

A staff member enter a single room of a patient/resident with suspected COVID-19 to administer IV medication to the patient/resident.

The patient/resident has symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19 and recently returned from international travel.

There is ongoing transmission of COVID-19 in the local community.

The patient/resident is cognitively impaired and his behaviour is unpredictable at times.

The individual patient/client/resident’s pre-existing likelihood of COVID-19 = HIGH RISK

 

The patient/client/resident factors = HIGH RISK

 

The nature of the care episode = HIGH RISK

 

Physical location = LOW RISK

Likely high risk

 

Healthcare worker to comply with Standard, Contact and Airborne Precautions (incl. use of a P2/N95 mask)

     

    Can I use a mask more than once?

    No, but you can continue wearing the same mask between patients, so long as you do not touch it.

    We have adopted a framework that means you can apply and continue using one mask (surgical or P2/N95) for a period of up to four (4) hours, provided the mask is not touched, damaged or becomes wet. This is based on World Health Organisation COVID-19 response recommendations to maximise opportunities to both protect HCWs and provide ongoing care to many patients. There will be more information and local education about what this means for donning and doffing your PPE between patients.

    Remember: Your mask is always one of two places: on your face or in the bin. You cannot remove and reapply the same mask, or wear around the neck or on top of the head between uses.

    For information on topics such as physical distancing and hygiene please follow the below link to the Department of Health resources:

      Someone in my household recently returned from a high risk country and is self-isolating. I did not travel, or have contact with anyone infected with COVID-19. Do I need to self-isolate too?

      Other members of the household are not required to be isolated unless they also meet the above criteria.

      Self-isolation does including distancing from members of your existing house hold – these principles apply.

      I have met the criteria for self-isolation. Will I get paid?

      In light of the updated advice from the Prime Minister’s Office. Calvary will no longer be providing 14 days paid isolation for those leaving for international travel from Monday 16 March 2020. If you choose to travel internationally, you will be required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days upon your return, and use the leave type personal and carers leave. Where paid personal and carers leave is not available, the period will be unpaid leave.

      Calvary will only provide paid isolation leave for a period of 14 days for employees who are able to provide evidence that they have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

      If an employee contracts COVID-19, they will be placed on Personal and Carers leave, as is the case with any illness. If the personal and carers leave balance is exhausted, other leave types may be utilised where available.

      Calvary will also honour its agreement to pay for the 14 day period of isolation for those that are already overseas as at Monday 16 March 2020.

      Calvary acknowledges that this approach may differ from that of the Local Health District directives within our public hospitals, if you are an employee of Calvary then the paid isolation period will prevail.


      Do I need to provide evidence for my isolation period?

      Yes. In order to get paid for your period of isolation we require a medical certificate that demonstrates that you have been exposed to COVID-19.

      There may be exceptional circumstances in which we do not require a certificate. In these instances your manager will contact their Regional CEO and the National HR Director to confirm approach.


      Am I required to work during my isolation period?

      Where possible, employees are encouraged to complete work from home during the paid isolation period. This is particularly applicable to office based employees who have access to work from home arrangements.

      If your normal work is not able to be completed from home, you are encouraged to take this time to access and complete any online learning that is available to you. Managers are encouraged to facilitate this process where possible.


      I am a manager who has an employee that meets the criteria for paid Self Isolation, what leave type do I use?

      Managers should note that Calvary will only fund a 14 day period of leave in the circumstance where an employee can evidence exposure to a COVID-19 positive case and are not unwell themselves. In any other circumstance appropriate leave types should be used such as Personal and Carers leave for general illness.

      Managers will need to update the pay code by searching Coronavirus-19 Leave and for Amount select Full scheduled day this will work same as entering in Personal Leave. If you are in Community Care and do not have access to Kronos or My Kiosk then please email payroll directly requesting the leave type.

      In My Kiosk as per a normal leave application, select Coronavirus- 19 Leave as the leave type. Submit application as per normal process.

      The CDNA PHU Guidelines details the circumstances under which confirmed and probable cases can be released from necessary isolation restrictions, as well as when cases are clear to go into high risk settings. There is clear criteria that has to be met for people to be released from isolation and you must seek medical advice on whether you are able to be released.

      Please go to the latest CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units for the most up to date information:

       

      The duration and degree of immunity following infection is not yet known. Persons who have been released from isolation should adhere to hygiene and physical distancing measures.

      Re-exposed recovered cases should self-monitor for symptoms clinically consistent with COVID-19 for 14 days after the last contact with the confirmed case. If symptoms reappear, they should immediately self-isolate and be retested for SARS-CoV-2. As further evidence becomes available on the duration of immunity, these recommendations may be amended, so please go to the CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units for the most up to date advice from the Commonwealth Department of Health. Please ensure you seek medical advice if further information is required.

      Please note that the information below is in addition to the Visitation for Hospitals and Residential Aged Care, effective 27 March 2020. For full details visit www.calvarycoronavirusupdates.org.au

      HR FAQs

      If I need to care for children directed to stay home from school or day care?

      In the event of school closure, where the employee is required to care for children, they will be provided with 3 days personal and carers leave, from their existing leave balance, to allow time to make alternate arrangements for the provision of care for their children. This leave will be provided without the need for evidence.

      At the end of the three day period employees are encouraged to speak to their manager regarding the need for ongoing leave to care for their children. In this scenario, alternative leave types such as annual leave will be the most appropriate applicable type of leave.


      If I contract COVID-19?

      In the event that you have tested positive for COVID-19 you will entitled to personal or carers leave. If you do not have any personal or carers leave available, other leave options will be considered such as annual or Long Service Leave. Please speak with your manager to discuss options.


      If I have any of the symptoms of COVID-19?

      If you are concerned you may have COVID-19 please seek medical advice by telephone. You will need to take personal or carers leave if you are feeling unwell with any or all of the symptoms of COVID-19.


      What if I am exposed to known case of COVID-19 with no or unknown level of PPE?

      If you care for a person who is identified to have COVID-19 and you have worn appropriate personal protective equipment you are not required to take any leave. If you develop any symptoms please refer to “Request leave to undergo testing”, below.

      If you have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 (outside the health care environment) Calvary will provide paid isolation leave for a period of 14 days to allow you to meet the Department of Health Guidelines.

      Evidence of this exposure will be required. If at the end of the 14 days isolation, you are not experiencing symptoms, you may return to the workplace and undertake site based temperature checking before returning to your shift.


      If I am in the ‘increased risk” group?

      On 29 March 2020, the Prime Minister announced the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee’s (AHPPC) advice that the following people are, or are likely to be, at higher risk of serious illness if they are infected with the COVID-19 virus:

      • People aged over 70,
      • People aged over 60 with pre-existing conditions
      • Indigenous people aged over 50
      • People who have immune deficiencies (e.g. undergoing Cancer treatment, secondary to an underlying medical issue)

      Calvary is offering a range of options for these individuals and is requesting that people in this group complete a leave election form, If an employee chooses to take leave in this instance they will be provided annual leave in the first instance and then other leave options as available. Discussion should be held with your manager to guide decisions.

       

      If I’m required to do travel related quarantine?

      Calvary acknowledges that changes in travel restrictions can change rapidly and that employees should continue to review state based restrictions before travelling.

      Travel related quarantine will often mean that employees will be housed in designated accommodation for the 14-day quarantine period in accordance with state specific regulations. This is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

      If you are planning to travel to an area which involves mandatory quarantine, you must include this 14 day period in your annual leave request.

      Should conditions change whilst you are on leave in relation to the area you are travelling and you need to quarantine unexpectedly, you may access Personal and Carers leave.

       

      If I am sent home from work because I have a temperature?

      In the event that you are identified as having a temperature before the start of your shift, Calvary will pay up to three (3) days special Coronavirus leave. You will need to monitor your temperature during these three days and if it does not go down and/or you become unwell, you will need to seek medical advice via the telephone. Calvary recommends you also undergo testing in this scenario.

      Should your temperature return to normal during this period, you may return to site, as rostered, to undertake temperature checking. Please notify your manager of your intention to return.

      If your temperature remains elevated above 37.5 degrees Celsius after the three days, you will need to access your personal and carer’s leave and seek medical advice.


      If I have been requested to leave site after failing screening questions or I wish to request leave to undergo testing?

      Calvary will provide up to three (3) days’ pay for those that undertake COVID-19 testing for circumstances outside the employee’s control. Testing leave must be pre-approved by the employee’s manager on the basis of:

      – Unintentional travel to a known hotspot

      – Possible exposure in the course of work

      – Advice of the LHD/ state government, inclusive of contact tracing

      – Failing on-site temperature screening

      – Failing community care pre-screening (support worker only)

      Employees must contact their manager for pre-authorisation prior to taking the leave otherwise it may not be paid. Evidence of testing may be requested.

       

      Government Support

      If you require support because you can’t earn an income or because you must self-isolate or quarantine, or are caring for someone with COVID-19 you may be eligible for government benefits.

      Work in dual location

      When either state or jurisdictional directives apply regarding dual employment, Calvary will work with employees to identify their primary employer and the following scenarios will apply:

       

      Residential Care (applies to disability and aged care) – COVID-19 Environment

      Where you are working at a second employer that has identified a positive COVID-19 case then you will be removed from the Calvary roster until your return is confirmed in writing by Calvary.

      You are required to either:

      a) Identify Calvary as your primary employer and cease work with your secondary employer and undertake 14 days home isolation before returning to Calvary employment. During this period you receive COVID-19 paid leave for a maximum of 14 days.

      If you experience COVID-19 related symptoms during the isolation period you should advise Calvary and it is recommended you undergo testing.

      OR

      b) Identify Calvary as your secondary employer. In this instance, you will be removed from the roster and not provided shifts until further notice (effectively suspended from employment without pay). Calvary will not break your service, and this period will not impact leave accruals such as long service leave.

      You should also notify your primary employer of your choice to determine if there is any assistance available to you.

      Evidence of secondary employment must be provided in the form of a payslip and/or contract from alternate employer. Employees must complete a COVID-19 Request for Information form and send to Calvaryhr@calvarycare.org.au

       

      Residential Aged Care (applies to disability and aged care) – Non-COVID-19 Environment

      Where state or jurisdictional restrictions apply to working in more than one residential aged care facility, Calvary will work with the employee to determine options available.

      Employee will be required to either:

      a) Identify Calvary as your primary employer and cease work with your secondary employer and you will be provided with paid COVID-19 leave for up to 14 days until a determination is made as to your primary employment.

      OR

      b) Identify Calvary as your secondary employer and you will be removed from the roster and not provided shifts until further notice (effectively be suspended from employment without pay). Calvary will not break your service, and this period will not impact leave accruals such as long service leave.

      In this instance the employee should notify your primary employer of your choice to determine if there is any assistance available to you.

      Evidence of secondary employment must be provided in the form of a payslip and/or contract from your alternate employer. You are required to also complete a COVID-19 Request for Information form and send to Calvaryhr@calvarycare.org.au

       

      Community Care – COVID-19 positive client

      In the event that a client in the community has been found to be COVID-19 positive, Calvary will assign a Support Worker to that client. The Support Worker will be considered part of a COVID-19 response team and will undertake specialised COVID-19 training.

      In order to support this process, Calvary will pay the Support Worker their average hours to support this single client in order to avoid disadvantage. In the event that another client within the same geographical area returns a positive COVID-19 test, the Support Worker may be rostered to support additional clients.

      In this instance, the Support Worker will be paid no less than their average hours.

      Calvary and the health and care sector continue to face challenges as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We want to ensure we have sufficient staff to assist when the people we care for are at their most vulnerable.

      Redeploying staff is one way to do this and we may be asking staff to work in areas and sites where they are needed.

      Where Calvary takes this approach we will ensure that employees maintain entitlements and do not work outside the scope of their capability/ practice. Support and orientation will be provided. We are actively sourcing accelerated up skilling methods to assist staff in the transition to other areas.

      Where redeployment is not an option due to location or activity, employees may wish to take annual leave.

      Travel restrictions

      • Ensure you keep your manager informed of travel plans so that they can be aware as the situation changes, while you are on leave
      • Ensure you adhere to the following Calvary policies in regards to work related travel introduced 25 March 2020:

      – Calvary has ceased all international travel.

      Staff who remain overseas and are unable to return

      Calvary employees can access accrued and unused annual leave, if available. Calvary will be flexible with other leave requests (e.g. ADO, Long Service Leave, Personal and Carers leave and Leave without pay).

      Special leave will only be granted in this circumstance with approval from the Regional CEO and the National Human Resources Director. Upon your return to Australia, you may access the paid isolation period, if you meet the criteria outlined.

      I wish to travel for a family commitment or have an overseas holiday booked this year, what should I do?

      In light of the most recent updated advice from the Prime Minister’s Office, Australians must avoid all non-essential international and domestic travel.

      Employees are strongly advised to seek advice from their travel provider or airline as to whether tickets can be postponed or refunded.

      Calvary will no longer be providing 14 days paid isolation for those leaving for international travel from Monday 16 March 2019. If you choose to travel interstate or internationally, you will be required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days upon your return, and use the leave type personal and carers leave. Where paid personal and carers leave is not available, the period will be unpaid leave.

       

      International Travel

      All travellers who have returned from international travel are required to be in mandatory quarantine for 14 days after arrival in Australia. Returned travellers must adhere to jurisdictional quarantine requirements, which may include mandatory hotel quarantine.

      Am I eligible for the Australian government’s JobKeeper Payment Scheme?

      Please note that eligibility for this payment is not determined by any one employee’s individual circumstances but is based on an assessment of criteria of Calvary’s business entities.

      For charitable entities such as Calvary operates, apart from the Private Hospitals, this equates to a reduction in turnover equivalent to 15%. This threshold has not been achieved to date.

      In addition, as the Private Hospitals are being funded to pay and retain employees to be ready for any need to hospitalise public patients, under the Commonwealth Government Guarantee, a condition, correctly, is that application for JobKeeper payments is not permitted.

      To date Calvary has received no JobKeeper subsidy payment from the Australian Government, given the criteria has not been met.

      More information will be communicated to employees’ as it becomes available.

      The Pay Office is able to provide a letter of service to support applications for any employees’ wishing to apply for the JobSeeker Payment Scheme.

      Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Human Resources team if you require any further information.

      Yes.

      • the Maxxia Meal Entertainment benefit now includes takeaway and home delivery meal purchases. See further below for details

      Maxxia Meal Entertainment for takeaway and home delivered meals

      In light of the nationwide restaurant closures and restrictions currently in place due to COVID-19, eligibility around Maxxia Meal Entertainment purchases have been temporarily relaxed to include takeaway and home delivered meals.

      Conditions of the update include:

      1. The change will be in effect for this Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) year only, 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021. Takeaway and home delivery transactions are eligible within this period only.
      2. It is important to note that this does not change the places at which the Meal Entertainment card can be used. The new provisions will allow takeaway and home delivered meals to be purchased from restaurants that would normally accept the Meal Entertainment card, if the employee were able to dine in.
      3. This includes some meals ordered through delivery platforms such as Deliveroo, Menulog and Uber Eats, where they deliver for the permitted restaurants.
      4. Employees can use their Maxxia Wallet card when paying or claiming the expense via the Maxxia app if receipts are retained. The Maxxia Wallet Card can also be linked to such delivery platforms as the default payment method.

      The latest communication is below:

      More information will be communicated to employees as it becomes available. Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Human Resources team if you require any further information.

      Calvary encourages all employees to stay at home and access personal leave if they are feeling unwell.

      If you believe that you have symptoms of illness, or have self-screened and have an elevated temperature, you must not attend the workplace. You must stay at home and access personal and carers leave.

      In the event that you are feeling well and attend your usual place of work but it is identified during the screening process that you have a temperature of 37.5 degrees or above you will be requested to return home. In this instance, Calvary will pay employees up to three (3) days special Coronavirus leave.

      It is recommended all people with a temperature should be tested for COVID-19 as an elevated temperature is a symptom. You will need to monitor your temperature during these three days and if it does not return to normal levels and/or you become unwell, you will need to seek medical advice via the telephone.

      You will need to also notify your manager of the COVID-19 test result prior to returning to work.

      Should your temperature return to normal during this period, you may return to site, as rostered, to undertake temperature checking. Please notify your manager of your intention to return before attending the workplace.

      If your temperature remains elevated above 37.5 degrees Celsius after the three days you will need to access your personal and carers leave and seek medical advice.
