Locals who’ve been impacted by the current lockdown are being urged to seek Services Australia online and phone options, rather than visit service centres.
Service centres will remain open for vulnerable members of the community as well those who feel the need access immediate support they’re unable to complete online or over the phone.
Minister for Government Services, Stuart Robert, said people can check and start applying for assistance now and activate if they leave or have reduced employment.
Importantly the current Desert Rose mobile service Centre tour through the Riverland and Mallee has been put on hold.
Minister Robert said ‘The Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment is also available for people living in South Australia who can't earn an income because they must self-isolate, quarantine or care for someone who has COVID-19,’
