AMS COVID-19 Safety Resource: Helpful Tips as Restrictions Ease

As restrictions being to ease across Australia, it’s important to still ensure the safety of yourself and others. In a post-lockdown world can be a little different, so here are some tips to help you navigate the return of in-person tasks safely.

As always, ensure you’re following the latest safety advice from the government in regards to what types of tasks can take place.

Tips for a Post-Lockdown World

  • If you are vaccinated, consider putting this on your AMS profile. You may be asked by clients to see confirmation of your vaccination status. You should also feel empowered to ask other talent and clients about their vaccination status if it is important to you.
  • Many AMS clients have been waiting for restrictions to ease before undertaking their next campaigns, especially for those in-person tasks. To be the first to know about new and relevant tasks, make sure you flag your AMS email alerts in your inbox. If using GMAIL your emails may end up in your promotions or spam folder, flag them asap so they go directly into your inbox.

As a talent, it’s important that you:

  • Practice social distancing. Reduce physical contact with other people (at least 2 meters apart).  Here is a guide on how to practice social distancing.
  • Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often and in warm water for at least 20 seconds.  Here is a guide on how to practice good hygiene.
  • Ask people upfront.  Ask if they or anyone in their household, or anyone you’ll encounter during the shift, are feeling unwell or displaying COVID-19 symptoms. You may also consider asking if that person may have traveled to a high-risk country or are currently in self-isolation. We strongly encourage you to communicate respectfully with other talent and clients.
  • We urge you not to put yourself at any unnecessary risk.  Please do self-isolate if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been instructed to do so.
  • Wear protective clothing like masks and gloves. There has been a lot of debate on the efficacy of gloves and masks, but one thing is agreed, the virus spreads faster if you touch your face after getting the virus on your hands. To lower the chance, consider wearing gloves and masks and do not touch your face as much as possible – or at least wash your hands first.
