Dear Relatives and Friends of Buckland,
Unfortunately, one of our residents have been deemed as a close contact by the Public Health Unit. The resident is not in the facility at this point in time. The resident also received a negative rapid test and we are awaiting the PRC result.
We are acting under the direction of the public health unit and they have directed staff within the facility to wear goggles OR a face shield in addition to the surgical masks.
Please ensure that when you are visiting, you are correctly wearing a surgical mask without breaching infection control procedures.
We stress that we are not in a lockdown or an outbreak. These are all precautionary measures to reduce the risk until we receive the test results from the said resident in order to keep your loved ones, visitors and our staff safe.
We are waiting for further direction from the Public Health Unit and we will be sure to keep you updated on any changes that occur. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact myself via the Nursing Home reception on (02) 4752 2500.
