Emergency Preparedness Planning for COVID-19

Jul 31 2020

We all need to be prepared and know what to do before, during, and after an emergency.

People with disability may need additional support, resources, or advocacy during this health emergency. They need a plan that is tailored to their unique support needs.

The Queenslanders with Disability Network has been working with a team at The University of Sydney who lead research on Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction, and together they have prepared a comprehensive guide to help people with disability to get the facts about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and make a plan for how they will manage the impact of the situation.

The guide provides links to trusted sources of information about COVID-19 and also includes information about:

  • understanding COVID-19 and how to protect yourself;
  • making a plan for how you will manage during this public health emergency;
  • knowing what to do if you or someone who supports you experience symptoms of COVID-19.
