COVID-19 Outbreak: Update
Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,
We have been notified that a resident in South Wing has tested positive to COVID-19 from the swabbing completed on the 4th January. South Wing has since been in lockdown and the family of the resident has been contacted and informed.
All of the residents in this wing will be isolated until further notice. Additionally, all staff caring in this wing are cohorted to South Wing to prevent contamination to other sections of the facility. The said resident is fully vaccinated and is not showing any symptoms which is a highly positive sign.
Under the circumstance that we do receive another positive test result for a resident, the family and next of kin will be contacted immediately. Please rest assured that we have a wonderful team who are doing their best to ensure the safety and health of each of your loved ones.
We understand how difficult and frustrating this must be for all of you as well as the residents, but we ask that you please remain patient. We continue to be in contact with the Public Health Unit and are receiving updated guidance throughout each stage.
As you know, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Virginia Mitchell via the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500.
