As of March 18, 2020, our offices have been closed to the public. Please contact us via email as our phones are not attended at this time.  

Some upcoming IPS training events are being postponed and rescheduled. If you are currently registered for training you will be contacted.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Do not touch your face. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue. 
  • Avoid being in physical contact with others who are unwell, and, if you are unwell stay home. 
  • Practice social distancing – keep at least one or two meters between you and other people. 
  • If you have having symptoms – fever, cough, or difficulty breathing – call 811 and selfisolate.
