14 Apr 2022

Dear Families and Friends of Buckland,

With the long Easter weekend approaching so very soon, I am happy to advise you of some wonderful news. Earlier this morning, the remaining two COVID-19 positive residents have now been medically cleared. In accordance with the CDNA Guidelines, the Public Health Unit have declared the outbreak at Buckland Aged Care Services to be closed as of the 14th of April 2022 at 11:59pm depending if there are no further cases being identified on site. This means that from tomorrow, residents are now permitted to have two visitors per day in the Thomas Buckland Wing. Please note, all other conditions of entry are to remain the same. Both staff and visitors are only required to wear an N95 mask.

I understand how challenging these past couple weeks have been for everyone. I am very excited to welcome you back through our doors and have the opportunity to see your loved ones again. Thank you for your patience and understanding through this very difficult time.

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

Kind Regards,

Virginia Mitchell,

Facility Manager
