RATs Provided to People With Disability

share

Late last week it was announced that people living and working in disability funded residential settings will start to receive free Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) to help prevent their exposure to COVID-19.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the distribution of tests would assist some of the most vulnerable members of the community and their support workers.

“This is a great initiative as it will help ensure that people with disability can be supported safely at home, and reduce the risk of infections spreading as well as the potential for hospital admission,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

The kits will be distributed to disability service providers by staff in NSW Health Local Health Districts.

People with disability can also purchase testing kits using their NDIS plan funding or access their free allocation from community pharmacies available for those who hold Commonwealth Health Care or Concession Cards.
