Latest COVID-19 Update 2 December 2020


Information current at 2 December 2020.

On 1 December 2020 a new Direction from the Government came into effect for aged care homes, and as a result everyone in a residential care home is now required to wear a mask, except residents and children under the age of 12.

This means that all our staff and contractors will be wearing single use surgical masks at all times when they are around other people, including their colleagues, volunteers, and visitors. It also means that visitors will also need to wear a mask, which we will supply you when you visit. Thankfully, the Direction means that residents will not have to wear a mask at this stage.

Thank you for your continued patience. If you have any questions or concerns about wearing a mask while visiting, please call the Residential Services Manager before your visiting appointment.
