Covid Update

Dear Residents, Families and Independent Living Unit Residents

Following our PCR testing clinic on Monday the 18th of April, we can report that we have had a further 11 residents that have returned a positive result.

These residents reside in Peter Top West and Ken Stewart

All positive resident's representatives have been contacted by phone call.
Residents who have returned a negative result, the resident's representative has been contacted via SMS.

Sonic has advised us that a further PCR testing clinic will be held on Thursday the 21st of April.
Residents who have recently recovered will not be tested again for 12 weeks as per Public Health recommendations.

We continue to support the residents to remain socially connected with phone calls, video calls, staff visits, individual activities/exercises and walks outside and in the corridors.
Any resident that leaves their rooms for exercise are encouraged to wear a mask.

Residents in the non affected wings are able to walk freely in the corridors wearing a face mask and can continue to have "controlled visits".

We have additional clinical support on site, Aspen Medical have assisted us with further staffing to assist during the outbreak. These staff members consist of Registered Nurses and Care Staff, they will be working alongside our amazing team.

Kind Regards

Jacqui Marden
Acting Chief Executive Officer
