With the coronavirus outbreak now declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the COVID-19 virus continuing to spread in Australia, MTPConnect’s Board and Management have agreed to take a range of proactive steps to change the way our team works.
In the interests of the health and safety of staff and our valued partners and stakeholders, we now have an emphasis on virtual, rather than face-to-face interactions.
For the foreseeable future, MTPConnect staff are working from home. They are not able to travel domestically or internationally or attend large meetings or events/conferences. This means they will be making extensive use of virtual meetings and connecting technology. External visitors to all our MTPConnect offices are restricted to “business critical” meetings only.
All of these policies and procedures have been implemented to limit the potential for our team members to be exposed to the COVID-19 virus and in turn, help reduce impacts on increasingly stretched health services in our communities. I apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause but trust you understand our reasons.
We will continue to actively champion and support the MTP sector and look forward to working together with you, but doing it in a different way for the moment.

Managing Director and CEO
