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.

With the information available at the time of the outbreak, the unequivocal health advice from our Chief Public Health Officer was clear; we needed a circuit breaker to stay ahead of the coronavirus pandemic. However, we have since learnt that someone deliberately misled our contact tracing team.

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.

Every year on this day, we pause to remember those who served, fought and died in that war and in all conflicts in which our country has been involved.

SA Budget 2020: keeping South Australia safe and strong

2020 has certainly been a year we will never forget.

When I'm at community events, phone canvassing, door knocking or speaking with residents at my "Coffee with Corey" catch-ups, many of you have taken the time to share with me how your family or small business has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, creating the greatest health and economic challenge of our time.

With your feedback, personal stories and suggestions on how we can better improve our community, I appreciate how important it is we create jobs, invest in infrastructure, improve public transport and provide health services closer to home.

We have thrown everything at this virus. To save lives and livelihoods, to save jobs and businesses, and to cement South Australia as the safest state in the safest nation.
