COVID-19 Update

3 Apr 2022

Dear Family and Friends of Buckland, 

Yesterday, we conducted day 6 surveillance testing in Thomas Buckland Wing and unfortunately, we detected one additional COVID-19 case. This brings the total case number to five, however it is a relief to see that the infected residents are in a stable position and are still showing either no or minimal symptoms. 


Rest assured that we have wonderful staff who are doing their best to provide the optimum care to each of your loved ones.


The Public Health Unit has been informed and yesterday’s development and there are no changes to the current risk assessment and arrangements for visitation.


As you know, we greatly appreciate all your patience and support during this time. We will continue to provide regular updates. If your loved one resides in Thomas Buckland Wing and would like more information, please call the Nursing home, and ask to speak to the Registered Nurse on duty.


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


Kind Regards,

Virginia Mitchell

Facility Manager
