13 May 2022

Dear Families and Friends of Buckland,

With the weekend approaching, I am happy to advise you of some wonderful news. The remaining two COVID-19 positive residents are now 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 13th of May 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 and Matron Rothery Wing. As such, all other conditions of entry are to remain the same.

In regard to PPE, 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
