Citrus Australia is pleased to share with you their Guide to COVID-19 in the Orchard & Packing Shed. This is a one-stop shop for citrus growers and packers dealing with COVID-19 in the workplace, and has been developed based on information available to our team from meetings with federal and state governments in both health and agriculture departments, and with industry bodies and stakeholders.
Aside from the guide, during the first six months of crisis management during COVID-19 we sent regular updates via email to all growers and packers registered with Citrus Australia. You can scroll down to the bottom of the page to see these. As of July 2020 we are no longer sending these, however we continue to update the guide and website as necessary.
To view other useful COVID-19 information on our website, just click on each of the tabs to the right, which include:
- Workforce (including the WHM, SWP & PLS)
