The NSW Government has extended the deadline for disability workers aged 16 years and over who live or work in a local government area (LGA) of concern to receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to attend work.
Disability providers must request disability support workers, who live or work in an area of concern, receive their first dose of vaccine by 12:01am Wednesday 9 September, or have evidence of an appointment to be vaccinated by the end of Sunday 19 September, in line with the NSW Government requirements, to continue to attend work from Monday 20 September.
Authorised workers under the age of 16 years remain exempt from the requirement to be vaccinated.
From 20 September disability support workers who live or work in an area of concern can only attend work if they have had at least 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or evidence of a medical exemption.
Information on how to book a priority vaccination appointment can be found at the NSW Government website.
