Covid-19 Update

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) AND BEYOND CARE

27 July 2021 – Restrictions Impacting Beyond Care Services Extended

The NSW Government has advised disability day programs in Greater Sydney should cease all activities in group settings from 6pm 27 July until 10 August, unless non-attendance at a day program would result in a risk of harm to the person with disability or others. Beyond Care is acting quickly to adhere this NSW Health advice and determine how we can continue to support people with disability, their families, and carers who rely on us. Please talk to your service coordinator or program manager if you have any immediate concerns or questions.

For further details, you can visit the NSW Health Website.

7th July 2021 – Restrictions Impacting Beyond Care Services Extended

Further to our update on 26th June, the NSW Government has this morning confirmed that the Stay-At-Home order will remain in place until midnight on Friday July 16th. This impacts all Beyond Care services apart from the services we deliver in the Dubbo region.
Accommodation Services and In-Home Support

As an essential service, our in-home support, SIL and STA accommodation services will remain operational! However, under the Stay-At-Home Order, the following restrictions affect all Beyond Care sites and services being provided, excluding Dubbo:⁣

All non-essential visits are to be postponed. While all essential and medical appointments will continue, NSW Health has advised visits are to be restricted. House coordinators will be in touch to reschedule any planned visits as soon as the Stay-At-Home orders have been lifted.

Residents will be under the Stay-At-Home order, which means they will be unable to attend non-essential activities in the community. Clients will, however, be supported to take part in COVIDSafe activities at home.

All staff will be required to wear masks and additional PPE will be available.

All other pandemic protocols, including temperature screening and social distancing, remain in place across all Beyond Care sites.

Community-Based Group Activities

Under the Stay-At-Home order, Beyond Care is suspending our social groups within the Greater Sydney regions until the order is lifted at midnight on July 9th.⁣

As a recipient of centre or community-based group support, we will be in touch directly next week, and keep you informed and up to date on when services will resume.

Let’s work together, stay positive and all play our part in keeping the community safe.
