Restrictions for residential aged care facilities
Dear Residents, Relatives and Friends of Buckland,
Unfortunately, due to the increase in COVID-19 transmissions around NSW, the Health Department has provided us with additional restrictions for residential aged care facilities regarding our residents.
The notice from NSW Health includes:
- Residents are now discouraged from leaving the facility to attend to large gatherings in Greater Sydney
- If residents are leaving the facility, they must wear a surgical face mask.
If you are planning on taking your loved one out of the facility, please be mindful of the risk that is present and of the above health advice that has passed down to us. With this being said, please also avoid highly populated areas and any hotspots throughout Sydney. It will ensure the health and safety of our staff and residents.
Thank you all for your understanding and patience. As always, 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.
