Can I attend a face to face support group?

It is recommended to attend support groups virtually where possible, especially if you are immunocompromised, or will be in contact with a person who is immunocompromised. If you are located in a high-risk area, you should follow the advice of your state government to stay at home.


If attending a face to face support group, ensure that they have a clear COVID-19 protocol in place for the following:

  • Registration and contact details for all attendees to enable tracing if anyone is exposed to the coronavirus.
  • A cleaning regimen.
  • Capacity for physical distancing.
  • Availability of hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser.
