CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 - ANNOUNCEMENT
We find ourselves in unfamiliar circumstances currently in our Nation and Worldwide.
As such, our Association, Scleroderma New South Wales, has decided to cancel our monthly Support Group Meetings until further notice. This decision has been taken in view of the Public Health Protocols now being put into place by the Federal and State Governments. Our Seminar planned for Saturday 27 June 2020, will also be postponed until a date in the future. It is with regret that this action has been necessary. Please be assured we are still here for you should you need advice, information, or just a friendly supporting voice at the end of the phone. Our committee member Fran, (0419 361 045) is happy to speak with you, as am I. Our office will still be open, but on a more limited basis. We will still publish our May Newsletter and keep you updated on “what’s new” with Scleroderma. Do follow all the hygiene and risk aversion recommendations and keep safe in your own environment, as we all come through this time safe and well.
Best regards to you all.
