COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

3rd December 2020

We find ourselves in very uncertain times due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). As an organisation we have been staying up to date on the latest developments and taking actions to keep our clients, staff and community safe.

We are following guidelines from the Federal and State Governments and the Government’s Health Authorities. We will continue to update you as new information becomes available and keep you informed of the decisions and actions we are taking as a business.

We want to reassure you that it is business as usual at the MS Society, and the health and well being of people with MS continues to be our priority. We are here to support you and to deliver services to people living with MS.

Our services

When you come to the MS Society SA & NT office you will be asked to 'check in' using our QR code and sanitise your hands. Support Coordination, Nursing, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy services are available. Our hydrotherapy and gym programs are running in accordance with our COVID Safe Plan approved by SA Health. Our MS Assist line, 1800 812 311, continues to operate and is the best way to connect with our services team.

How can you help?

In this uncertain time, it’s incredibly important that we all do our bit to get through this. Please follow all guidelines provided by the Federal and State Governments and the Government’s Health Authorities. Keep 1.5m between you and others. If you’re unable to maintain a 1.5m social distance, consider wearing a mask. Maintain good hygiene to stop the spread of Coronavirus. Try following these good hygiene habits.

Please remember, you are not alone. We are all in this together. The MS Society team is here to support you. Please contact MS Assist on 1800 812 311 to speak with an MS staff member.
