News

Community Visitor visits via videoconferencing

On Wednesday, 8 April 2020, the SA Parliament passed legislation and with regulations made on 14 April 2020, which allows the Principal Community Visitor and other appointed Community Visitors to conduct ‘Virtual Visits’ to people who may have a special order as a result of possible exposure to COVID-19.

The Principal Community Visitor has been given additional functions and powers through the COVID-19 Response Act 2020 and subsequent COVID-19 Emergency Response (Schedule 1) Regulations 2020 to enable Community Visitors to visit clients in alternative ways, namely by audio-visual means for the people who have a special order to keep them safe from contracting or exposure to COVID-19. The Community Visitor Scheme will be commencing ‘virtual visits’ as soon as possible by video link and/or phone.  More information will be provided as it becomes available.
