The international COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly, with local transmission reported in NSW.

Individuals who receive disability, home care or other personal care support services may be more vulnerable to serious complications if they do become infected, depending on the nature of their disability and other medical history.

Individuals who receive such services are also vulnerable should their usual care be interrupted. It is particularly important that transmission among these groups is minimised through enhanced infection prevention and control procedures.
