  • Your temperature, vaccination and health status to be confirmed at reception, using Zipline
  • Visits remain restricted to the resident’s bedroom and outdoor areas only
  • Visitors to go directly to the resident’s bedroom and do not access other areas of the residence
  • Common areas such as community rooms, dining areas, lounges and chapels remain closed for visits.

Please note that visitors must adhere to all infection prevention and control measures for residential aged care and if you are unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms, do not attend aged care and please get tested to rule out the virus.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding these matters, please contact the Facility Manager at the residence for assistance.
