It’s essential that we maintain infection control protocols, including COVID-19 screening and testing.
Make sure you know local testing clinics and how you can support your clients to access them.
If a client is reluctant to get tested, talk to them to understand and address their concerns. Reassure them they will be supported if they have to self-isolate. Explain how local services will work to maintain their access to drug or alcohol treatment.
Guidance for accessing and delivering for AOD services during COVID-19 is available including specific Frequently asked questions.
