Under present Covid-19 circumstances, when meetings of more than ten persons are not allowed, Transient Workers Count Too will be asking our members whether they agree to a postponement of our annual general meeting that was originally scheduled for Sunday, 19 April 2020. In the next few days, members can expect an email or phone message from our office asking you to vote on the matter. Please check your messages and respond promptly with your vote. About a week later, we will post the result of the voted decision here.
In these times of heighened risk of Covid-19, TWC2 wishes to advise as follows, with respect to visiting our office: Our office will remain open so that we can continue to provide assistance to migrant workers. However, we encourage all to consider using phone and electronic communication if at all possible instead of physical visits. If the matter is such that a physical visit is necessary, we will (a) request that you wash your hands with soap at the bathroom before entering our premises; (b) let us take your forehead temperature; (c) declare your travel history for the last 14 days; and (d) sit at some distance from our staff or volunteers when in conversation. TWC2 cleans our tables, doorknobs and other surfaces more than once a day with antiseptic, to maximise safety for everyone concerned.
