LDS safety measures
Dear families, friends and advocates
Today I am writing to you about the LDS response to the current SA Health recommendations.
Due to an increase in Covid cases across South Australia – Chief Public Health Officer, Nicola Spurrier, has recommended a booster shot for adults aged 65 – 74 and everyone 18 years and over with medical comorbidities, disability or complex health needs if it has been 6 months or more since the last one.
It is recommended for anyone living in a shared care home, and carers or employees in the disability/aged care sector. LDS staff will support clients who wish to receive this booster to attend an appointment subject to Family, Guardian or circle of support authorization. If you would like LDS to support a client to have a booster please get in touch with your Team Leader or CSM.
At the moment there are approximately 2500 new cases each week in South Australia. Please remember to follow Covid-19 protocols such as hand hygiene, mask wearing as necessary, sanitising and staying home if you’re sick.
