Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19)

At Intelife the well-being of our customers, staff and community is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are taking preventative measures regarding the outbreak of novel coronavirus, now known as COVID-19.

A coronavirus is a type of virus which is common across the world. COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in China in December 2019 that has now spread internationally.

We are following the government guidelines on the coronavirus and have put in restrictions and controls that are recommended by government bodies.  These restrictions and controls apply to all staff, participants, customers, subcontractors and visitors associated with Intelife.

Protecting yourself

The best way to protect yourself and others against coronavirus is to practice good hygiene by:

  • Washing your hands frequently (for at least 20 seconds) with soap and water or using an alcohol based hand gel;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose;
  • Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of the tissue immediately into a rubbish bin and clean your hands as described above; and
  • Avoiding close contact (maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres) with anyone if you or they have cold or flu-like symptoms.
