Coronavirus (covid-19) Update

At Karakan the health and safety of our customers, staff and communities is always our priority – and never more so than at this time of concern during the covid-19 health alert.

We place immense value in the trust that our customers and communities give us to provide quality, reliable and safe support services.

In light of this, we are monitoring the situation closely and following the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health to ensure that our already attentive focus on health and safety is enhanced during this time. 

We are working hard to ensure that we are in the best position to provide ongoing support services to people and minimise any risk.

Karakan continues to operate as normal at this time.

We have contingency plans in place should the situation change with a team monitoring the situation to be able to respond as quickly as possible.

Health & Safety Advice


Social Distancing

What it means: Keep enough space between you and other people to reduce the risk of exposure.

How to do it: Avoid places where you will need to be within 2m of people out in the community.

Focus on just 15 minutes of close contact out in the community.

Avoid shaking hands, but maintain a connection from a safe distance with a wave, bow or a simple nod of the head.


Good Hygiene

What it means: Everyone must practise good hygiene at home and at work to protect against infection and prevent the virus spreading.

How to do it: Wash your hands often with soap and water, including before and after eating and after going to the toilet.

Use alcohol-based hand sanitisers.

Clean and disinfect surfaces.

Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue, disposing of tissues properly.
