We continue our commitment to respond promptly and thoroughly to measures put in place by the government and local authorities. The government has recently instructed people to avoid gathering and stay home, other than for essential reasons. We have implemented our plans for this scenario, with our staff and students limiting their activities outside of their residences and remaining closely connected and purposefully engaged on digital platforms. Our January quarter training programs have shifted to online formats for the final portion of their lecture phases.
At present, with the exception of a very limited number of essential services, we have shut down our activities at our main facilities. Our commercial kitchen has been permitted to continue to be used for food distribution in accordance with directives from local authorities.
We have worked to ensure that all staff and students who returned to Perth from overseas before Australia closed its borders carefully observed all the necessary requirements for self-isolation before returning to their accommodation. The health and safety of our community continues to be our priority.

In the midst of developments related the COVID-19 virus, our priority continues to be the safety and care of our students, staff and the broader community. We are actively ensuring we are in compliance with all government guidelines. This includes implementing further logistical changes as to how and where we gather.
Alongside of other measures we have already taken, we are carefully monitoring the number of people in our buildings at all times, making sure we are within government designated limits.
In follow up to our recent decision to suspend the outreach component of our January quarter training programs, we have been notified by YWAM’s International Discipleship Training School (DTS) Centre, that all of our January quarter DTS students can now graduate following their 11 weeks of lectures. An online option will be available for students who have already returned home.

As Youth With A Mission Perth, we continue to closely monitor global developments with the COVID-19 virus.
This virus has had worldwide impact and the situation is changing on a daily basis. Although we continue with ongoing ministry, certain aspects of how we function must be adapted. Over the last weeks, we have implemented social distancing, temporarily suspending our Friday Night Meetings, large gatherings, and reconfiguring how we meet and connect as a missions community. We are actively encouraging best health and hygiene practices and taking added measures as we clean and disinfect our buildings, accommodation and shared spaces.
In light of the rapidly changing situation and global scope of the virus, we have decided to postpone our April quarter training programs, as well as the outreach components of our January quarter training programs. We realise that this has wide-ranging impact on our students and their families, as well as our community. However, we believe this is the most wise and loving response at this time.
Following the downgrading of this global situation, we plan to once again offer the training programs usually run in the April quarter, reconfigured as necessary. January quarter students will also have the opportunity to join in re-scheduled outreaches in order to complete their training programs and graduate as planned.
The timing of when and how we offer the April quarter programs and January quarter outreaches will be made with careful consideration and in consultation with relevant authorities and guidelines.
Our July and October quarter training programs are not currently being impacted. Given the fluidity of the situation, however, we are committed to navigating these decisions with the best information possible and in line with government guidelines.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. We are committed to providing updates with further developments.
Please join us as we continue to pray for the communities and individuals impacted by this virus.
