E-Blast to QDN Members – COVID-19 Resources for Queenslanders with Disability
This is an important time for everyone in our community. People with disability, their family and carers need the facts about COVID-19. People also need to be able to think through what they need to make a plan for how they will act together with their support network during this public health emergency.
QDN is working with the Queensland Government to ensure Queenslanders with disability can get the information, resources and tools they need to prepare for this evolving COVID-19 pandemic. QDN is pleased to release the first in a suite of resources and tools to give people with disability information about getting the facts, making a plan, what you can do to slow down the spread of the virus and where to go if you need help.
We have developed 3 new accessible resources. The topics are:
- What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
- What does Self-quarantine Mean?
- Coronavirus (COVID-19) Essential Items Checklist
What is coronavirus (COVID-19)?
You will find the following information in this book:
- The coronavirus and how to stay healthy.
- How coronavirus can go from one person to another – spread.
- Some helpful phone numbers and websites.
What does self-quarantine mean?
This resource includes information about what to do if:
- You feel sick and have symptoms.
- The person that helps you gets sick.
- You have to self-quarantine.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Essential Items Checklist

QDN is currently working on some other resources to assist people with disability with some practical tools and information to help you think through how to make a plan for your own individual needs and situation during COVID-19. These will be available soon. QDN will let members and supporters know when they are up on the QDN website.
