From our Managing Director & CEO (originally sent by email)
We are writing to share an update on how we are addressing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our operations.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are always considering what is best for the health and safety of our team members, clients and the communities that we serve. It is important to Perks that we play our part in keeping our communities safe.
To lessen the risk of spreading COVID-19, we’re taking further precautions to help address this unique, ever-evolving situation.
We have made the decision to proactively move to phone or video conference client meetings where possible as of today, 16 March 2020.
We remain both active and available by email and telephone and there is no impact to the work that we do for our clients.
In some circumstances, we will still conduct a face-to-face meeting where absolutely necessary. Before agreeing to a face-to-face meeting, we ask clients to self-report their recent travel plans and exposure to COVID-19 so that we can responsibly assess the situation. In the event that you or someone close to you has potentially come into contact with someone who has/ had COVID-19, it is important to contact SA Health immediately.
To date, we have not had a single reported case of COVID-19 amongst Perks team members nor clients that we have been in contact with.
Below, we have put together some reading for you, to give you three important perspectives on the effects of COVID-19:
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and unaffected during this difficult time.

James Black, Chief Executive Officer
