Bruny Island AU Retreats & COVID-19

March 18, 2020 Coastal Retreats cares deeply about our Guests, Community, and Employees.

The COVID-19 pandemic affects all of us, and we need to consider our actions and interactions in this ever changing situation.


To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to safeguard the well-being of our Staff & Guests we have reviewed our procedures and protocols throughout the company.

  • Using a handheld device, Guests will need to 'Check-In/Out' of their accommodation venues via the QR code found at the entrance of their stay, as per contact tracing guidelines.
  • Our frontline Staff will be required to limit any physical interactions with others to essential only, maintaining social distancing wherever possible; we have also reviewed and increased our cleaning procedures.
  • We have advised our Staff to follow regular handwashing procedures and to ensure the wearing of gloves while cleaning properties and to minimize physical contact with others. Our Staff will stay home if they have been in contact with anyone who has travelled from overseas, and/or if they experience any of the known symptoms.
  • We actively encourage our Guests to notify us if they are experiencing any of the known Corona Virus symptoms while staying with us, so that we can take additional precautions.

Staff members that can work from home will do so, those unable to do so, will work in separated office spaces.

For additional and up to date information please refer to Australian Government Department of Health ( )

If you think you might have COVID-19 because of recent travel or contact with a confirmed case, phone the Tasmanian Public Health Hotline, 1800 671 738.
