COVID outbreak: resources to assist providers

Reads: COVID-19 News Update


The current outbreak of the Delta variant of COVID-19 across much of Australia has highlighted the importance of infection control and preparedness within the disability sector.

Disability service providers have proven amazingly diligent and resourceful in maintaining high quality services and protecting their participants throughout the pandemic period. And that makes today’s news that people within disability accommodation have been infected just that little bit more difficult to hear.

Please do not hesitate to contact NDS if we can in anyway assist with your COVID preparedness.
