Covid -19 Update
CODA Inc. provides support to vulnerable people, and we therefore provide an ‘essential service’ under current Government guidelines applicable to the COVID 19 pandemic.
Whilst some non-essential activities have been cancelled, support for personal care, domestic activities and access to community for shopping, appointments and exercise can continue with appropriate social distancing recommendations in place.
Clients and their relevant supports will be advised directly of any changes to their services required by government directions or changes in regular staffing due to availability.
CODA Inc. monitors and responds to both State and Federal Government directions applicable to the provision of disability services in the pandemic environment.
Staff are regularly advised of updates and changes to guidance related to direct service provision and are required to regularly update their knowledge regarding recommended infection control processes.
