Precautions to mitigate risk of COVID-19 transmission
Whilst isolation requirements for people who are COVID-19 positive ended on 14 October 2022, the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care strongly recommends that disability support workers do not attend or provide disability support services for 7 days after testing positive for COVID-19 and while symptoms persist.
COVID-19 continues to present risks to many people with disability. Staying away from work while COVID-19 positive or symptomatic will reduce the risk of transmission to this group.
Further, disability support workers are encouraged to stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination. Information for disability workers about COVID-19 vaccines is available on the Department of Health and Aged Care website.
