COVID-19 & Unisson Disability

In light of the emergence of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Australia, we want to reassure Unisson Disability clients and families, and the wider public, that we are continually monitoring and adjusting our services with health and safety at the forefront of all our decisions.  

Unisson is adhering to all advice released from the Australian Government,  World Health Organisation and NSW health authorities. We have put together a COVID-19 response team to develop and implement comprehensive policies and procedures to minimise the risk of infection to clients and staff.  

We understand that for clients, families and staff these changes may have a significant impact, and we are committed to taking steps to minimise this. Further changes may be needed as new information comes to light. 

OUR PROTOCOLS

  • Staff that test positive to COVID-19 are to self-quarantine for 14 days or until all symptoms subside.  

  • Staff that feel unwell with any of the specified symptoms are required to self-isolate until symptoms subside.  

  • Staff that have returned from international travel are required to self-isolate for 14 days before returning to work.  

  • Staff that have a family member or member of their household that have travelled overseas, are showing symptoms, or are getting tested for COVID-19, may also be required to self-isolate upon discussion with management and our COVID-19 response team.    

  • All large face-to-face training events for staff have been cancelled. 

  • Temperature checks and sign-in procedures are in place upon arrival at any facilities or offices. 

  • All meetings are being held via digital means unless a face-to-face meeting is critical. If this occurs, social distancing and good hygiene measures have been put in place to reduce contact.  

  • All staff who can work from home have been advised and encouraged to do so. 

  • Hand sanitiser is available and to be used at all facilities and offices. 

  • Buildings and vehicles will be wiped down regularly.

  • Signage and markings have been put in place to ensure social distancing procedures are adhered to. 

  • Our services now have strict procedures and restrictions in place to reduce the impact of COVID-19. Visit Changes to our Services to read more about what these procedures entail.
