The team at State Owners Corp is placing the safety and health of your clients, staff and partners above all else. As a result, we are increasing our previous measures against the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We want to limit the risk this virus poses to clients, community, and our business.

As of the 17th of March, 2020, all State Owners Corp staff will be working from home and offices will close. Currently, we are asking all our staff to work remotely. We have made extensive arrangements to ensure minimal disruption to the services your receive. The staff at State Owners Corp appreciate the understanding and patience of our clients during these unprecedented times.

All physical meetings will stop as of the 17th of Match until further notice.

In person meetings include, but are not limited to:

  • Committee Meetings
  • Site Visits
  • Annual General Meetings

Regardless of size, all in person meetings will cease.

We are ensuring that your Owners Corporation Manger contacts their committees to make alternate arrangements where needed. Your committees may choose to continue with meetings, but should they require cancellation or rescheduling, you can expect notice in due course.

Please send all, non-urgent enquiries, via email.

We have made adjustments to ensure staff can continue to work productively during the COVID-19 crisis. However, this may mean a reduction in our capacity to receive calls. As a result, we will prioritise urgent matters.

Please email all non-urgent enquires to you Manger’s or Assistant’s email address, or to info@stateownerscorp.com

Any face to face pick ups for keys or fobs, from our Brunswick East office, will only occur in cases of critical need. All other orders will be sent via registered post. We are imposing strict guidelines for all who attend our office. As a result, we will require prior confirmation of the time of your visit to ensure proper safety arrangements are made.

Reducing the impact of COVID-19 is dependent on slowing the rate of infection.

The media often refers to this as “flattening the curve”. The longer we do not intervene, the faster the disease spreads. This will severely impact our health services, making it difficult for them to provide care for those who need it.

By flattening the curve we delay COVID-19 cases, reducing the strain on our health services. As a result, State Owners Corp is ensuring staff work remotely, to reduce their contact with carriers of coronavirus, slowing the rate of infection. We have not made this decision lightly but we believe it will have a positive impact on our community.

State Owners Corp COVID-19

Most cases of COVID-19 are considered mild.

Those at most risk of serious complications are:

  • The elderly
  • Those with compromised immune systems
  • People with chronic illnesses (Multiple sclerosis, cancer, lupus, etc.)

Your symptoms may not be severe, but you can still pass the virus on to someone at high risk. As a result, it is important that we all play our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Whether you are feeling unwell or not, you should be practicing good hygiene and social distancing.

How to Practice Good Hygiene

  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • Wash your hands, often, with soap and water, including before and after eating and using the bathroom, for at least 20 seconds
  • Ensure you properly dispose of your tissues
  • Clean and disinfect all surfaces
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitiser when needed
  • Avoid contact with others and stay more than 1.5m away from others if you are sick

How to Practice Social Distancing

  • Avoid large public gatherings
  • Stay home if you are unwell
  • Minimise physical contact, especially with people in the high risk categories (older people, those with chronic illness, and those with compromised immune systems)
  • Keep a distance of 1.5m between you and others where possible
