As COVID infection sweeps the state we’re getting far too many reports that some of you have been left to work it out for yourself.
Just like the wonderful people you support, you need support from your employer with adequate guidance about what needs to occur while we await further advice from those supposedly in charge.
This should include but not be limited to:
We know PCR testing is prioritised for people living with a disability and any disability worker with symptoms or confirmed close contacts. We’re meeting with state health officials daily and will continue to push for more details about what further supports can be provided. We have a specific disability services meeting on Wednesday and we’re really keen to hear about a disability operations centre we understand is in the process of being made operational.
Please keep safe, and if you’re unwell please stay away from others until you recover or get a test. If you have any concerns, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 880 032. We’ve got you covered.
