With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now out of containment phase and uncontrolled within Australia, the safety and wellbeing of our clients, their families, our staff and volunteers is our number one priority at Minda.

While there are currently no cases of COVID-19 within our community, Minda has joined numerous other Australian businesses which have activated early-stage pandemic response plans as a precautionary measure.

This has led to the following decisions by the Minda Executive:

  • Closing the Minda Brighton site to the public - access only to clients, family members, essential staff and essential contractors such as medical practitioners. 
  • Voluntary isolation of the Minda Nursing Home (PKC) – which is now closed to all visitors other than essential staff.
  • Suspension of the MyPATH programs at the Brighton site – day options is instead taking place in community and home-based settings.
  • Temporary closure of registered training organisation, the SA Learning Centre (RTO code 4881), based at Minda Brighton.
  • Closure of INC Café.
  • Closure of the Minda Pool at Brighton – no access for Minda clients or the public.

The Minda Executive Team is continuing to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and we have put these precautionary measures in place based on the advice and guidance of health authorities.

We appreciate this may disrupt the daily routine of clients, and while this is regrettable, COVID-19 has created unprecedented circumstances and we have had to make difficult decisions which minimise the risk of infection. The safety and welfare of our clients and staff continues to remain our number one priority.

Throughout this period, we will continue to update our community with important information. To ensure you receive the latest information, please provide your details below.
