COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
All States and Territories across Australia have implemented vaccination mandates for Community & In-Home Aged Care and Disability Support Workers. We have communicated these requirements to all relevant members of the Mable community in advance of any Government led mandate taking effect and have ensured that all independent support workers have self-declared their vaccination status by the relevant required dates, in order to continue providing support on the platform.

Guidelines by State & Territory
There are current COVID-19 Restrictions across Australia, including mask mandates and contact tracing procedures.
Please refer to your relevant State or Territory Government’s website for more information as to how this applies to you.

We recommend clients and service providers discuss how support can continue.
We remind you of the importance of following COVID-19 infection control measures and continuing to use the Home Support Screening Tools and Guidelines before and during support sessions.
Please familiarise yourself with the “Good hygiene for coronavirus” guidelines provided by the Department of Health.
If you need evidence that you are providing an essential service, people providing care and support can access their ‘Support Worker ID’ on their Mable Mobile App.
