8 Apr 2022

Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

Yesterday afternoon, four of the current COVID-19 infections in the Thomas Buckland Wing have now been medically cleared. This will bring the total of active cases of COVID in TBW down to three. We are also currently approaching the 12-day surveillance testing, which is due today, the 8th of April 2022.

Alternatively, Buckland has also invited the infection control lead for the residential aged care facilities from NSW onsite on Wednesday. This is to ensure we are following the correct processes and procedures to contain the spread of COVID with Buckland. We appreciate our lovely staff who are going above and beyond in providing high quality care to all residents. Thank you for understanding during this challenging time.

Please note, there are no changes to visitations and the conditions of entry from the previous update. However, if you are unsure of our current conditions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500.

Kind Regards,

Virginia Mitchell

Facility Manager
