A: We unequivocally support the public health orders in place to protect vulnerable communities against COVID-19. People with intellectual disabilities are a high-risk group for COVID-19 illness, complications, and death and we urge everyone to get vaccinated.
From 1 February 2022, double COVID-19 vaccination will be a minimum condition of participation, attendance, entry, volunteering, and employment with Special Olympics Australia. This policy applies to everyone 12 years of age and older.
In addition, our activities and events will all continue to be conducted with strict adherence to relevant public health orders.
We will continue to monitor information and advice and adjust our COVID Safety Plans as required, to keep the Special Olympics community safe.
