The reminder to get tested if you show any COVID symptoms also remains in place. 

Since the beginning of the COVID outbreak, Autism Queensland adopted the following guiding principles for decision making which have steered us well through 2020 and into 2021:

  • Taking care of our people, employees and clients
  • As an essential service provider, remaining open and available for our clients where possible
  • Keeping the business running to the best of its ability under a COVID Safe Workplan
  • Adhering to government directives.

Until 22 January we will continue with the following practices:

  • No visitors to sites other than essential services and clients from 6pm tonight
  • Temperature checking for all staff (and essential visitors) at all our sites
  • Updated COVID declarations for all non-employees on site using the QR code
  • Staff working indoors to wear a mask if they are unable to appropriately socially distance 
  • Adhere to one person per 4 square metres with maximum of 20 to 50 with COVID Safe or Industry Plan.
  • Vigilance with cleaning and hygiene practices.

Autism Queensland continues to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and updates to the Australian community coming from the Federal and Queensland Government.  

We remain committed to delivering services to support people on the autism spectrum and their families in a range of formats to suit individual needs and within the appropriate health guidelines.

Following are a selection of links to various websites and resources we hope will be useful during this time of uncertainty. 

And please remember we are here to help. If you have any enquiries about Autism Queensland and our services please email customerservice@autismqld.com.au
