COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic – Huntington’s NSW ACT response

17 March 2020

Dear Huntington’s NSW ACT client / member / supporter / contractor

As you will be aware, the Government’s advice on dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly.

We have decided, in the interests of minimising the risk to our very vulnerable client group, to cancel all face to face activities except for individual client meetings from today (17 March) until further notice.  This means that support and carer groups will not meet, and art and music therapy clients will not come to our West Ryde offices.

We are continuing to meet individual NDIS and Youth Connection Program clients for now, but this may also change following health authority advice.

This move to a more restrictive model of activities aims to protect our clients and staff, and to comply with Government requirements. Looking at the situation in countries further down the pandemic’s path, we can expect that many other aspects of normal life will be restricted in the near future.

Please bear with us as we work through the practicalities of this decision, which we don’t take lightly.

Kind regards

Lewis

Lewis Kaplan
Chief Executive Officer
