Overview

Important information about Tech Tuesdays

Vision Australia is closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 in Australia and the safety of our workforce and clients is our number one priority.

As a precaution, we have temporarily suspended Tech Tuesdays.

The Australian Department of Health has identified a number criteria for people that are at the most risk of serious COVID-19 infection. One or more members of Tech Tuesday meet one or more of the Department of Health’s criteria and as a precaution we have decided to suspend the Tech Tuesday events.

This a precaution only. We are not aware of any member of our workforce or our client base that has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

We are currently exploring alternative options to support group members during this time. We will update you with more information about this and when the restriction may be lifted as it comes to hand.

The suspension of Tech Tuesday does not mean you cannot continue to receive Vision Australia services, however we would ask you to refrain from attending a Vision Australia location or appointment if you are:

  • Within 14 days of returning from or coming into close contact with someone who has returned from mainland China, Iran, Italy or South Korea
  • Experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Vision Australia’s cancellation policy requires NDIS clients to cancel appointments before 3pm the prior business day to avoid being charged. As a result of the above changes, this policy is currently suspended to minimise impact on our clients.

Vision Australia does offer a number of services that can support people to remain connected to us and the community, including:
