COVID-19 information for the service provider, workers, and volunteers
People with disabilities have more chances of getting impacted by the current situation in more ways than one. Its especially true if they have some underlying medical condition. We urge all the organizations, workers, and volunteers involved in disability services, participants, and family members to observe all precautions. The general well-being must follow all guidelines as issued by the Government from time to time.
Since people with disabilities and receiving home care services are more vulnerable to the current alarming situation, we are working to ensure the reduced risk of COVID-19 for the residents. At the same time, all efforts are made such that the usual care is not interrupted. Through enhanced infection prevention and control procedures, we can minimize the transmission of this virus.
We acknowledge and applaud the work of the disability support providers working diligently in such alarming times, taking all precautions to reduce the risk of COVID-19 for the residents.
