Personal Protective Equipment
Wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is an important way to help you stay safe.
If you have a disability and require personal support, you may need to access PPE.
PPE includes masks, gloves, gowns and face shields. PPE can help stop COVID-19 from spreading from one person to another.
It is vital that NDIS participants and support workers are able to buy PPE at a reasonable price.
