In a recent media release, The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has revealed that they will suspend all hearings and workshops, for the time being, subject to ongoing review.
This decision is a consequence of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and based on information available from the Australian Government and affects all hearings and workshops scheduled until at least the end of May 2020.
The suspension also applies to all group consultations which have been part of the engagement work conducted by Royal Commission staff.
The Commissioners are considering the implications of this decision on the continuing work program of the Royal Commission.
Given the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline for submissions is subject to continual monitoring.
