Travel Update: COVID-19
At present travel within South Australia is largely unrestricted. People are free to visit most regional areas, however there are border restrictions for visitors coming into South Australia which people must be aware of.
We have provided the below links which may be useful to you if you are travelling.
• South Australian Government website – Restrictions and responsibilities regarding travel restrictions into South Australia
• Australian Government Health website – Biosecurity measures and travel restrictions into Australia
• SA Health website – Coronavirus Updates
Social distancing guidelines still apply so we ask wherever possible that passengers should try to adhere to the 1.5m social distancing recommendations.
At SeaLink Travel Group we are following the advice of the health authorities and the Federal, State and Territory Governments when making decisions about our vessels, cruises, tours, accommodation, and operations.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time and stay well.
What are we doing to minimise the risk of COVID-19?
We have always had stringent and rigorous hygiene standards, cleaning procedures and health and safety practices. During this time, we have stepped up our practices and procedures even further.
Our staff have been briefed and trained on appropriate hand hygiene and sanitising practices. We will continue to monitor and maintain these practices in accordance with the health advice to ensure we maintain these to the highest standards.
All our operations have increased vessel, vehicle and room cleaning procedures and practices. Hard surfaces (such as tables, handrails, door handles, counters etc.) are being cleaned more regularly to minimise the risk.
Where possible we have made additional hand sanitisers and cleaning stations available to our customers and employees to exercise good hand/hygiene practices. We have also placed hygiene communications from the relevant health authorities in our vessels, vehicles, accommodation, food venues, shop fronts/counters/terminals and offices.
In the unlikely event that a customer or staff member presents with symptoms, where possible we will supply them with a mask and follow the instructions and recommendations from the Australian Government Health Department. Click here for more information.
What can you do to minimise the risk?
Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best way to minimise the risk from COVID-19. You should:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet.
- Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
- If unwell, avoid contact with others. Consider deferring travel and seek healthcare advice.
- Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures (stay more than 1.5 metres from people).
If you are feeling unwell or want more information on the recommended personal control measures, visit www.health.gov.au.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support during these tough times.
