Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

We hope everyone is doing well and has been enjoying the warmer weather.

We have been notified this afternoon that commencing today, children under 12 years of age can now enter an Aged Care Facility. All residents are permitted to have 2 fully vaccinated visitors aged 12 years and over plus 2 children aged under 12 per day.

All visitors that are aged 12 years and over must have received a second dose of a COVID vaccination at least 14 days prior to their visit to the facility. Whilst children under 12 years are permitted to visit an Aged Care Facility, they are required to be accompanied by a fully vaccinated person. If the visit involves anyone under 12 years old, the visit must be in the resident’s room only.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Virginia Mitchell, on (02) 4752 2500.

Please stay safe and well.

Warm Regards,      

Virginia Mitchell
Facility Manager
