NSW Health is the lead NSW Government Agency for the NSW response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Department of Customer Service (DCS) will not provide specific information on the spread or containment of COVID-19, as the most up-to-date authoritative advice will be provided by NSW Health. Go to the information hub on nsw.gov.
A person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers and other persons. Employers and businesses may also have other obligations under a range of business regulations administered by the DCS.
Some businesses have contacted us to ask what will our regulators do if a business is unable to meet regulatory obligations as a direct result of COVID-19. Our current advice is:
We understand that businesses are currently preparing contingency plans for what to do if stronger containment measures are put in place.
We encourage you to prepare business continuity plans if you do not already have them.
Information on business continuity planning can be found at business.gov.au.
