Coronavirus information for TAC clients
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, with symptoms ranging from a mild cough to pneumonia. Some people recover quickly and easily, and others may get very sick very quickly. You can access government resources for up-to-date information and advice:
If you suspect you may have COVID-19, call the Victorian Government dedicated hotline on 1800 675 398.
Information in your language
If you need COVID-19 information in your own language, please see:
You can access TAC information in your language on keeping appointments to support your recovery.
We can also arrange an interpreter for appointments related to your transport accident.
Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is very important that you keep up your medical care and treatment. If you wait this could delay your recovery.
You can do some medical appointments over the phone or video call using a service called telehealth. The TAC can pay for the telehealth appointments you need to help your recovery from your transport accident. Find out more about telehealth.
