Lifting of Restrictions

Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,

As you are all aware, the media has been releasing news and updates about commencing the reopening of facilities on Monday 11th of October.

Whilst this is exciting news, we must continue to be mindful of the rules in place once we can allow loved ones back into the facility.  From the 11th of October, a resident at an Aged Care facility can have up to 2 fully vaccinated visitors who have been vaccinated with both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. In saying this, we have not yet had any official direction or guidelines from the Department of Health. Once we have received official advise on this, we will make sure to update everyone.

As a reminder, we will be having our Relative Zoom meeting tomorrow at 4.30pm.  As always, the meeting URL and passcode will be sent via SMS tomorrow morning.

Lastly, as we mentioned previously, 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
