We also ask that all staff who work in our corporate offices in the Sydney metropolitan area to work remotely commencing tomorrow, Friday 18 December for the remainder of the year.
Staff should avoid coming together unless it is essential and should comply with physical distancing, personal hygiene requirements and comply with the public health advice at all times.
