4 Apr 2022

Dear Family and Friends of Buckland,

Early this morning, we had a resident who was displaying signs and symptoms of COVID-19, we had performed a Rapid Antigen Test and they returned a positive result.

Our 12-day surveillance testing is not due until the 8th of April 2022; however, Buckland has taken the proactive approach and we have conducted Rapid testing on all the current residents in Thomas Buckland Wing.

Unfortunately, we have picked up 1 further positive case in addition to the case above which would bring the total number of active cases to 7. Please be assured that our wonderful staff are doing their upmost best in providing high quality care for all residents.

Our IPC lead is now stationed at Thomas Buckland Wing indefinitely to provide staff with extra support through education and assisting with cares and cleaning. In addition to this, our IPC lead is conducting thorough education with all staff on donning and doffing procedures.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500.

Warmest Regards,

Virginia Mitchell

Facility Manager
