Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

At Buckland we are happy to advise we have received the latest official advise from the Ministry of Health in regards to the visiting procedures that will commence on the 11th of October.

Two Visitors per day will be permitted to visit a resident within an aged care facility. Whilst we are excited to welcome loved ones back into Buckland, this does only apply if the visitor is fully Vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine and if their second dose was received at least 14 days prior to their visit at an aged care facility. All children aged under 12 years old will not be permitted to enter an aged care facility.

Whilst this is exciting news for next week and something we can all look forward to, we must also still be mindful of continuing correct Hand Hygiene, signing Visitors Declaration at reception and using our Temperature check upon entry.

As a reminder we have commenced a register of voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations for visitors. You are under no obligation to provide your vaccination status to us; however, you are welcome to voluntarily supply this information.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Virginia Mitchell, our Facility Manager on (02) 4752 2500.

Please stay safe and well.

Warm Regards,      

Johannes Brockhaus                  Virginia Mitchell
