COVID-19 advice for people with disability
Some people with disability may be at greater risk of more serious illness if infected by COVID-19 and should take precautions.
Those at risk should talk to their doctor about what is appropriate for them.
Looking after your mental health is also important.
Remember: Stay home if you are sick or feel unwell and talk to your GP about being tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms.
