Meals on Wheels Central Coast (MOWCC) has announced that it is COVID-19 ready, with policies and procedures in place to promptly deal with potential incidences of the virus among clients and volunteers.
The not for profit organisation has devised strategies so it can still offer meal deliveries and services to those affected by COVID-19, unless directly advised by the Department of Health or other Government agencies not to do so.
The policies and procedures extend to clients of Coast Cuisine, a food delivery service which is a subsidiary company of MOWCC.
The meal delivery service will continue, with information being distributed to clients and volunteers regarding safe hygiene practices and seeking medical advice if they become unwell.
“We will continue to act on Department of Health advice and recommendations,” Meals on Wheels Central Coast CEO, Dennis Taylor, said.
“Resources are in place to ensure the safe sustainability of our meal services in the event of a wider outbreak in our community.”
Meals on Wheels Central Coast caters to over 800 clients, delivering around 14,000 meals per month to the elderly and people with disability.
