Dear Family & Friends of Buckland,
I am pleased to advise that the numbers of positive Residents continues to decrease. As of today, we have 27 active cases remaining.
The visitor restrictions will remain in place until Monday 4 September, however Friends and Family members that regularly attend the facility to provide care and support to their loved ones are excluded from these restrictions. Please note that you will need to complete a Rapid Antigen Test prior to entering the facility and wear full protective equipment. Please note you are also able to meet Residents outside of the care facility.
Residents have been urged not to leave their rooms; however we will not enforce this as a requirement as we recognise the emotional and psychosocial impact this can have on our Residents wellbeing.
It is important to note that the vast majority of Residents display no symptoms and all Residents are clinically stable.
Thank you for your continuous commitment to our residents' well-being and for upholding the uncompromising standard of care that we hold ourselves to.
We will continue to provide daily updates on the current situation and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us on (02) 4752 2500
Chief Executive Officer
