#192 Emergency accommodation for healthcare workers


30 July 2020

The Hotels for Heroes program, otherwise known as the coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Accommodation (CEA) program, has been extended to provide emergency accommodation for frontline workers who are required to self-quarantine or self-isolate, should they be unable to do so in their home.

Eligible frontline workers include:

The CEA program will also be available to a small number of essential frontline hospital and paramedic workers who regularly operate in an environment that involves consistent exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19) positive patients, who need accommodation on compassionate grounds or those who cannot safely self-isolate at home - for up to a three-month period during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
