The devastation evoked by the Covid-19 pandemic has turned the world on it’s side. It has revealed the most relevant and unique disadvantages that people with disability experience in community care and in health care. Protecting our vulnerable loved ones is thus the need of the hour.

 

As we are all aware, coronavirus is a respiratory disease that spreads from person to person when they come in close contact with one another (within 6 feet),that is when people come into contact with respiratory droplets produced by an infected person. Of course, Covid-19 is also spread when a person comes in contact with a surface that has been contaminated by coronavirus and then touches their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

 

The NDIS has introduced various temporary measures in Australia to control the spread of coronavirus while supporting their participants and providers. The NDIA has extended the following measures to support providers in Australia:

  • PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for certain participants and providers living in restricted areas

  • Low-cost assistive technology

  • Increased access to support coordination

  • One-off deep cleaning for support worker related COVID-19 diagnosis

  • Supported Independent Living (SIL) supports for participants who are required to quarantine or self-isolate

 

NDIS Participants are encouraged to access our services either online or over the phone. You can call the NDIS Contact Centre on 1800 800 110 and select option 5 for COVID-19 enquiries.
