It took just a few months for the COVID-19 pandemic to take hold of our lives and change the world we live in. Six months on, Australia has been one of the lucky countries that has managed to keep relative control of the pandemic, in comparison to many others, but there remains a long road ahead.
While our Victorian colleagues are experiencing the most extreme impacts of COVID-19 on their lives and their businesses, restrictions have eased in most other states and territories. However, even in those places, border restrictions remain a heavy barrier to returning to a new normal and limits on numbers for gatherings continue to remind us that things remain uneasy for now.
In the midst of the pandemic, the housing industry has continued to show that we are resilient and we are open to change.
To date, HIA has published 17 national member alerts providing advice to members on the rapidly changing business environment, promoting safe work practices and outlining details of government support measures as they have been announced. In addition, a raft of regional member alerts have been published, with a heavy bias on Victoria, providing additional tailored information for members.
The dedicated COVID-19 page established on HIA’s website at the start of the pandemic has provided a ready reckoner and focus for sharing a much larger library of industry information in the form of fact sheets and updates. This page has supported HIA’s broader communication with the industry since all material is currently available to members and non-members alike.
There are currently more than 30 information sheets available across three topic areas, including managing your site, business and health. There is also a dedicated page outlining all government support measures, and detailed information on JobKeeper and HomeBuilder.
