COVID-19 is a new virus that affects people’s respiratory system. Most people get a mild infection, others get a severe infection, causing hospitalisation. People with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, heart and respiratory conditions are more likely to develop a severe form of COVID-19.

- interactive, with scenarios to test your understanding in practice
- based in contemporary, consumer informed best practice
- focused on maintaining privacy, choice and control
- aligned with the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework
