DCJ has changed the requirements for service providers to report positive COVID incidents to your contract manager.

What you need to do from now onwards

As from 1 February 2022, the only reporting requirements for service providers to report COVID-19 positive incidents to your DCJ contract manager are where:

  • a child or young person in out-of-home-care or similar arrangements has been reported with COVID-19, and where the child or young person is under Parental Responsibility to the Minister (PRM)
  • a child or young person in PRM is unwell or hospitalised from COVID.

If you are a provider of such services, you will need to notify your DCJ contract manager as soon as possible.

The following DCJ after hours contacts are available for urgent matters only, you can contact the relevant staff.
