Seniors' Forum: Stroke Awareness & Prevention

Thank you to all those who attended my Seniors’ Forum about "Stroke Awareness and Prevention" last Friday afternoon.

While this year wasn't our usual set-up of over 100 guests and a lovely afternoon tea, we worked around COVID-19 restrictions so that our seniors could still enjoy our annual community forum.

Did you know that stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability? However, more than 80% of strokes can be prevented.

COVID-19 lockdown restrictions eased from midnight on Saturday

I want to start by sincerely thanking you for your understanding and cooperation during our community pause.

By banding together, it has provided our hard-working contact tracing team vital time to not only tackle the Parafield Cluster, but also avoid further community transmission.

COVID-19 lockdown for 6 days

On the advice of SA Health, from midnight tonight, South Australia will be on a 6 day pause with the introduction of new restrictions to get ahead of the Parafield Cluster.

This means all non-essential workers must stay home and only leave when necessary, such as for groceries and medical supplies.

These measures are being taken to reduce community transmission and avoid the long lockdown we saw in Victoria recently.
