NSW Health update
Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,
Unfortunately, we’ve just received news from the NSW Health Department that there are new close and casual contact locations in the Sydney Region, as well as the regional NSW current sites. Therefore, until further notice, we are required along with the other facilities in Greater Sydney and the Nepean Blue Mountains, to adhere to the following policies set by NSW Health:
- All visitors and staff must wear a surgical mask
- Only 2 visitors should be allowed each day
- Visits should be in the resident’s room
With this being said, we continue to strongly advise those to refrain from entering Buckland Nursing Home who have flue like symptoms or who have been in close contact with an individual with flu like symptoms.
As always, we thank you all for your continued understanding and patience as we ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff as our priority. We will be sure to provide an update when we are given notice of any changes in visitor restrictions.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Lisa Murray, our COVID-19 Marshall and Infection Control Lead on 0402 667 443.
