As a leading global human services provider, APM is closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) pathogen.
As always, our first priority is the safety of our participants and staff. All local offices are closely monitoring their local situation and following the advice of medical health authorities and immediately reporting any suspected cases. Given much of our work is face-to-face, APM has suspended all international travel for staff to high risk countries while ensuring that all recent personal and business travel is reported and, where necessary, staff are quarantined. Any staff who recently traveled to a high risk country cannot return to work unless they have a medical clearance.
In addition, APM has implemented its Universal Infection Control Guidelines and reinforced the need for all staff to exercise proper hygiene to help reduce the spread COVID-19.
The most recent list of high risk countries is: China; Hong Kong (including Macau); Thailand; Japan; Korea, Singapore; Indonesia; Malaysia; Taiwan; Iran; and Italy.
If you are an APM particpant and have recently visited one of these countries and are scheduled for a meeting with one of our staff, please contact the office and postpone the meeting. If you are feeling unwell, immediately contact your doctor or seek advice from a hospital. Medical authorities warn that the following symptoms could indicate COVID-19 infection: fever; breathing difficulties such as breathlessness; cough; sore throat; fatigue or tiredness.
