We would like to update you on the current COVID - 19 situation.
DEAR RESIDENTS, FAMILIES AND INDEPENDENT LIVING UNIT RESIDENTS
Today is day 6 of the COVID - 19 exposure on Peter Top West wing. The five residents who have not recently had COVID - 19 in Peter Top West have undertaken a PCR test today as per public health close contact guidelines.
We expect the results tomorrow when both residents and NOK will be informed.
Following these results we may be able to relax the visiting to this area. Further communication will be sent tomorrow.
Unfortunately, today we have been informed that one of our residents has tested positive to COVID - 19 in Victoria Apartments.
This instigated a Rapid Antigen testing sweep of all residents within the facility who have not had COVID - 19 within the past 12 weeks. From this, one other resident has tested positive.
Both these residents are in isolation.
This places the facility in an outbreak.
To ensure that we contain this outbreak and prevent further spread, we have set up the following:
All staff working in Victoria Apartments and Peter Top West will be wearing full PPE
Non essential visits to Victoria Apartments are to cease until further notice. Please contact reception on 62433100 or email email@example.com if you would like to apply for an exemption to visit this area.
Victoria Apartment residents are able to leave the facility with the following guidelines. If you would like to take your loved out please let reception know so that staff are able to be organised.
The remainder of the Facility will remain open to visits as per normal procedure with a booking and negative RA test.
Once again we thank you for your cooperation and will ensure that we keep you informed along the way.
Acting Executive Manager Clinical Care
