Moore Theological College has been closely monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus that has been unfolding in recent days, primarily through the guidance and advice provided by NSW Health.
NSW Health has established a homepage linking to their resources and advice, which can be found on the NSW Health website. The Centre for Disease Control has also provided useful information on precautions which you can take. As a College, we have strongly encouraged all faculty, staff and students to consult these sources for information about the situation.
What we are doing:
It is important to note that, at the time of writing, NSW Health describes the risk of infection for people in NSW as low. Our concerns and actions should be proportionate to the risk. Nonetheless, considering the global networking of our institution, the College has decided to take precautionary measures to ensure that our staff, students and visitors health and welfare are considered. These measures are slightly more cautious an approach than is currently recommended by NSW Health, but it seems to be sensible, given the amount that is not yet known about the situation.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact our WHS Officer, Mr. Martin Sumpter.
The College will continue to monitor the situation and advise if there are any developments directly impacting the College.
