1 Aug 2023

Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

Recent figures show that community transmission of Covid-19 has decreased significantly. With that being said, as of Tuesday 1st August 2023 visitors will no longer need to complete a RAT Test prior to entering the nursing home. Buckland Staff will be required to continue a RAT Test every 3 days or if symptomatic.

However, we will continue our procedure of wearing a mask whilst in the nursing home but we will be downgrading the mask policy to just a surgical mask now instead of the KN95 Masks. We still recommend social distancing to protect yourselves and our loved ones.

Thank you again for your understanding and cooperation.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us via the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500 if you have any questions or concerns. Stay safe and well.


Warmest Regards,

Melinda Junge

Facility Manager
