Latest information on COVID requirements at The Disability Trust
While COVID-19 isolation requirements are no longer mandatory in the community the disability sector is considered a “high-risk setting” and as such some restrictions remain in place. This update is to advise of The Disability Trust’s settings.
Staff who test positive for COVID-19 will be unable to work at The Disability Trust for a minimum 7-day period after their positive test.
