State of Emergency - as seen through the Government Gazette.

 

It’s a time of crisis, yet the business of government goes on.  During recent weeks, followers of the Government Gazette have borne witness to this paradox. Notices have been placed there by everyone from middle-level public servants to Her Majesty the Queen. 

 

Municipalities must also respond as their ratepayers self-isolate and businesses go into mothballs.  The previously unthinkable becomes the new must-do.

 

For ourselves, we are taking the opportunity to shift our training courses on-line. Good news for our students: no travel there, no travel back, no overnight accommodation, and no worrying about ordering the gluten-free vegetarian option!
