This page provides general advice on how to protect yourself, your staff and the community against COVID-19.
Please monitor the NSW Government website for the latest COVID-19 health advice.
If a client or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, either through a PCR test or a RAT, they should follow the advice from NSW Health regarding managing COVID-19 safely at home.
If they test positive through a RAT test, they should notify the result via ServiceNSW. Although this is no longer mandatory, it helps to access medical support from NSW Health, including antiviral medicines, if they’re eligible.
Managers should follow the NSW Health advice on information for people exposed to COVID-19.
Service providers should follow the advice for businesses with a worker who tests positive for COVID-19.
If a staff member is hospitalised or dies as a result of contracting COVID-19 while at work, you must notify SafeWork NSW.
By turning these COVID safe behaviours into everyday habits, we can continue to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection.
See the NSW Government website for more information on keeping workers safe.
