To our valued Bellberry community:

In line with South Australian 6-day circuit breaker restrictions introduced today, Bellberry has closed our Adelaide office. At this stage, the closure is planned for 19th-24th November and will be reviewed as more information becomes available. We will be working remotely for the time being.

Bellberry HRECs perform an important role: in terms of review of new research, the oversight of ongoing research and the provision of a participant contact pathway. We are committed to ensuring that our work continues in a safe and seamless manner regardless of what happens with COVID this year.

The Bellberry team initially trialled remote working practices in February and moved to fully remote services for the first time in March. Since then, our office occupation rate has flexed up and down according to the COVID environment in South Australia. We see today’s changes as simply the latest stage of this journey.

For our research users who access our services from across the country: it is business as usual for the Bb team (even if our desk locations are not). Our Bb pets are delighted to have us all at home again!

We support our public health colleagues in their work to control this outbreak and thank them for all their efforts.

Kylie Sproston – Chief Executive Officer – Bellberry Ltd
