Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

We had been informed this morning that a resident in Thomas Buckland Wing (Northwing) has tested positive to COVID-19. We are currently considered as being in a COVID-19 exposure and the public health unit has been notified. 

The resident is currently well and is only displaying symptoms of a cough and runny nose. The positive resident is now in isolation. 

All the other residents in Thomas Buckland Wing have been tested this morning and all the other residents remain negative. 

Staff caring for residents in the infected wing are wearing full barrier PPE.

There will be minimal changes to visitation during this exposure. Thomas buckland wing are permitted to have 1 visitor per day per resident and the remainder of the facility are able to continue with the 2 visitor per day per resident. There are no changes to the conditions of entry. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this difficult time. Please contact me via the Nursing Home reception if you have any questions or concerns on (02) 4752 2500.

Kindest Regards,
