SSN COVID-19 Response Plan

Introduction

The impact of COVID-19 in Australia in increasing and expected to further impact the Samford community even more over coming days and weeks.

The Samford Support Network (SSN) has been leading the coordination of the response for the Samford Community through local businesses and other community organisations.

This Samford COVID-19 Response Plan is an attempt to capture the scope, actions and control measures to coordinate the available volunteer resources in the Samford area and respond to urgent requests for assistance.

Objectives

The COVID-19 Samford Response teams aim to deliver basic food, provisions, and pharmaceutical medication to struggling community members who are voluntarily or otherwise confined to home; and to provide emotional and physiological support to our community.

Scope

Initially, only community members in the following suburbs are covered by this plan:

Samford Village, Samford Valley, Wights Mountain, Camp Mountain, Highvale, Closeburn, Cedar Creek, Yugar and Draper.

Note that these boundaries may be able to be expanded by using non-SSN resources and with the agreement of all Stakeholders.

Deliveries are limited to basic food provisions, professionally pre-prepared meals, and pharmaceutical medication.
