VTA response to COVID-19
Actions in place at VTA office until 30 June 2020
VTA has taken action to reduce the potential risk and spread of the virus among staff, members and visitors to the office.
It is intended the VTA office will continue to operate during normal business hours to maintain business-as-usual functions.
VTA has offered its staff the option to work remotely from home, where possible, until the end of June. Staff can be accessed by email and mobile phone. In order to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus for our staff, members and visitors, VTA Network and VTA project group meetings scheduled to be held at the VTA office will revert to remote meetings.
We will keep you up-to-date with further developments and actions as they transpire.
Thank you for your understanding.
