12 Jan 2022

Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

Unfortunately, this morning another resident in South Wing tested positive to COVID-19 via the rapid antigen testing. Therefore, we have a total of 3 residents who are currently infectious with the virus. We have collected a PCR swab from this resident and we are hoping to receive the result within the next few days.

As always, the family and next of kin where immediately informed and we have also contacted the residents’ doctor. The said resident is in a stable position with the only symptom being a cough.

The Public Health Unit has also been advised and we are awaiting further guidance. We will ensure to keep you updated on any changes that occur.

We are remaining vigilant and continuing with all infection control procedures and precautions.

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

Kindest Regards,

Virginia Mitchell
Facility Manager
