Kimberley Outback Tours Pty Ltd (KOT) is continuing to closely monitor the developments and advice provided around COVID-19.
The safety and well-being of our guests and employees is our main priority during this uncertain crisis time.
We are aware of intentions to lift some restrictions initiated by various state governments and would like to be ready to continue with our operation, with all the health and safety measures in place.
Once operations resume, we need to ensure the Health & Safety of our employees, passengers, and fellow travellers come first.
The health and safety of our passengers and staff is always our main priority and we’re taking a number of steps to ensure your continued well-being whilst visiting us. KOT is closely following all advice received from Australian medical authorities, as well as the World Health Organisation (WHO), regarding precautions that are needed to minimise risks concerned with COVID-19.
KOT will maintain a high level of cleaning and hygiene within our facilities and as an extra precaution, we are increasing the cleaning intensity level and frequency within our offices, vehicles, and operation. Cleaning products, antiseptic will reduce the risk of spreading harmful viruses, algae, and other possibly harmful bacteria and will be used during regular cleaning procedures.
We ensure all employees to maintain high hygiene standards on vehicles and at the workplace, including practicing proper hand washing and sanitising procedures.
Practicing good hygiene is important in stopping the spread of common viral infections such as flu, colds, or gastro, which can spread quickly in an enclosed environment.
So please practice good hygiene at all times:
- A hand sanitiser dispenser is located in our busses/coaches. Please make sure you make use of it when boarding and before all meals while on tour.
- Washing your hands is the most effective way to reduce the risk of contracting and spreading infections, so please wash/cleanse your hands after touching common surfaces, before eating and after coughing or sneezing
- Please take your fellow passengers into consideration when sneezing and with the disposal of used tissues/wet wipes, etc.
If a passenger shows any symptoms of colds, viruses or illness while on tour, certain safety protocol measure might have to be taken to ensure the safety and health of your fellow travellers (eg. wearing facemasks, visiting a GP at the next stop, isolation with meals, etc.)
It is an important thing to avoid catching any virus, so wash your hands and avoid touching your face. It is also advised to use hand sanitiser and cover a cough or sneeze with your arm/elbow.
Due to different factors, uncertain times, and government restrictions and circumstances out of our control, we have suspended all Kimberley tours, May to July 2020. We are assessing August 2020 Kimberley tours currently.
