COVID-19 – Current Situation
- At CCF Victoria, we are remaining vigilant. We are monitoring, on a daily basis, the situation and are following the advice of the relevant Australian and State Government authorities.

- We continue to reinforce our office protocols regarding hygiene and introduced additional cleaning measures to maintain the healthiest work environment possible.
- Our priority always is to keep our people, our CCF members/clients and the community safe.
