Both New South Wales and Queensland Health have issued rules regarding mandatory vaccination requirements for staff providing disability support services. A high level overview of these requirements are outlined below:
In New South Wales, all disability workers must have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 29 November 2021.
In Queensland, all disability workers must have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 13 December 2021.
The only exception is if staff have a medical contraindication certificate.
The Direction extends to health professionals, contractors, independent third party providers, and employees or volunteers engaged by external agencies “The Cohort”. The only exception is if a member of The Cohort has a medical contraindication certificate.
Please be assured that Rural Lifestyle Options Australia is actively working with all our staff to ensure we comply with these rules.
We are seeing this through with your support and together we can ensure our supports and services will continue to be provided in a safe manner.
