With cases slowly increasing in the Port Philip region and rapidly in the Melbourne region, we have made the decision to close our facility to visitors with the exception of essential or compassionate reasons. We will review this decision on a daily basis, but anticipate this will continue until Monday 20 July.
These visits will need to be planned with the Clinical Care Manager.
The health and wellbeing of our residents and staff remains our key priority, we will continue with our “gate” visits, as well as skype, facetime, telephone, email and letters.
With the risk of local transmission still prevalent, this is not the time to be complacent. Washing your hands regularly and keeping a safe physical distance of 1.5m away from others remain vital steps in helping you to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19.
