No doubt you are following the news of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as carefully as we are.

To keep everyone safe, the LIV is adopting a number of precautions to ensure the continued health of our staff, members and visitors.

We plan to remain open during regular hours and all events will go on as scheduled.

You can assist by staying home and not attending the LIV if you’re sick or feeling unwell. 

You will find hand sanitiser throughout the public areas of the LIV for your regular use.

As this crisis continues to develop, we draw your attention to measures designed to ensure that the risks of contracting or transmitting the virus to our members, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors are carefully managed.

The Australian Government’s Department of Health (AGDH) has established a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health Alert on the matter. See link below:

Other sources of guidance include:

To protect everyone’s health, we will take the following precautions for staff and visitors:

If you or a member of your household or staff have been to a country listed under the “Who is at Risk” section of the AGDH website please take the necessary precautions as set out under the “If you are at Risk” section and please DO NOT attend any of the LIV’s offices, events or facilities.

The Australian Government also considers a number of other countries to be at higher risk for COVID-19. These are set out on the AGDH website here.

If you are returning from any of these countries, you should follow the advice of the AGDH as set out on their website. Please DO NOT come to our offices, events or facilities during this time and follow the precautions set out on the AGDH website.

We continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide you with updates as the situation develops. We recommend you monitor the AGDH website to ensure you are aware of any other countries including neighbouring countries that may be added.
