Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

Unfortunately, there has been another resident in Southwing who has tested positive to COVID-19 after showing symptoms on the 7th January. Once again, the family and next of kin were immediately contacted and notified.

The resident is triple vaccinated, therefore, both residents who have tested positive are doing well and are showing minimal symptoms. This is a good sign and they are both being carefully monitored by a registered nurse at all times. The families will remain updated on any changes that occur.  

We reassure you all that our staff are continuing to wear the correct PPE at all times when providing care to your loved ones and are contact precautious to ensure the upmost safety and health of each resident.  

Spot checks are also conducted regularly with the PPE to ensure that there is no breach of the Infection Control Procedures.

Fortunately, no other resident has been observed to be unwell or are showing symptoms of COVID-19. They will all remain closely monitored by our wonderful Care Staff on duty for any signs or symptoms that may develop.

Thank you all again for your continued understanding and patience. We know how difficult and tiresome this is for all of you, and we too look forward to further progression and positive outcomes.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500. Please stay safe.

Kindest Regards,

Virginia Mitchell
Facility Manager
