What we are doing to stay COVID-19 safe
Last updated 10 August 2020
As we all learn to adapt to a new way of life that COVID-19 has presented, Delta is working hard to continue our purpose of helping animals to bring joy.
We love visiting hospitals, schools, nursing homes and offices around Australia and have missed meeting our program beneficiaries while our therapy dog teams adhere to Public Health Orders and safety considerations of those in vulnerable situations.
Being safe while we deliver our purpose is important to us, so we have put together a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan and Program Guidelines for Classroom Canines, Dog Safe, Paws the Pressure, and Therapy Dogs. Our COVID-19 Safety Plan includes taking a staged return where we will delivery therapy dog visits digitally and in-person where it is safe to do so.
Our Safety Plan and Program Guidelines not only makes Delta to COVID-19 Safe, but also informs the actions and responsibilities of our staff, therapy dog teams, facilities, and beneficiaries. You can read more about the Safety Plan and Program Guidelines here.
