ASSOCIATION OF UKRAINIANS IN

TASMANIA

 

COMMUNICATION: COVID 19

Considering the health, safety and support needs of our community

Dear all,

 

As we are sure you are aware the COVID 19 Pandemic is currently causing major disruption around Australia and the world, with current emphasis on ensuring the virus is contained, and the spread, halted.  Like other states around Australia, Tasmania has enacted a State of Emergency, and travel is restricted into the state.  In addition, there are specific things all of us can do such as practising personal hygiene and social distancing as recommended by Health authorities. For further information, please visit the below website.  If you require a print of this information, please let us know:

https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/what-you-need-to-know-about-coronavirus-covid-19#protect-yourself-and-others

The Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania is committed to the health and safety of our community and doing what we can to help.  If you or your family need assistance with shopping or other practical need, or are feeling isolated at this time, please call us on 62734471 for assistance.  Even if it is for a chat, we are happy to provide support. The phone line will be temporarily diverted to the President’s mobile to ensure a timely response.

In addition to social support, the Association has enacted several measures following a special meeting on Thursday 19 March:

  • Cancellation of the following gatherings until further notice. We hope that this will for a few months only, but we will continue to monitor the situation and advise when activities resume:
  • 4th Sunday gatherings
  • Community events (eg. Films scheduled for 27 – 28 March)
  • Choir practise
  • The publication With Ukrainian Greetings is still available – alternative delivery arrangements for local orders will be arranged as pick up from the hall is temporarily suspended.
  • In addition, a special session on Saturday 21 March to clean the Ukrainian Hall and Club room will be held.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitising procedures will be in place until further notice. The Tenant at the Hall is complying with the enhanced cleaning and sanitising procedures:
  • Hand sanitiser is readily available: anyone entering the hall to sanitise their hands
  • All surfaces (including door handles, light switches etc) to be wiped down before visitors leave the hall (on each instance).

The Divine Liturgy will also not proceed in the Chapel until further notice.

During this time where gatherings cannot be held, the Association will consider future activities and begin planning for late 2020 and 2021.  We will aim to proactively contact community members, both as a support measure in these current times, but also to seek your opinion and input into the planning process.  In this way, there is a sense of moving forward and hope for our community when this situation improves.

In summary, the Association wishes you and your family good health, and encourages anyone to reach out if they require support.  We thank you for your patience, and will be in touch with updates to our activities when the situation changes.

Regards

Marina Ladaniwskyj (President)

On behalf of the Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania
