COVID-19 Update: SwanCare Ningana

Before we enter the Easter long weekend, we would like to provide an update on the current COVID-19 outbreak at SwanCare Ningana. We can confirm one additional resident on Level 1 has tested positive to COVID-19. The affected resident’s family have been notified and the resident is being well taken care of in their room.

We would like to remind all visitors that unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, Level 1 will need to remain closed to visitors over the Easter period and movement restrictions will also continue. Exemptions can be made for end of life and partners in care under increased infection control protocols.

Residents will continue to be closely monitored for symptoms and will be tested every 72 hours until the current outbreak is resolved.

Visitations can continue to other floors; however, we do request that visits be limited where possible to assist us in managing this outbreak. Arrangements for telephonic and video communications can be made by contacting Ningana during reception hours.

Please be reminded all visitors must adhere to the current health and safety measures as detailed below:

  • Complete health screening and sign in using visitor kiosk upon arrival.
  • Current influenza and COVID-19 vaccinations prior to entry is encouraged.
  • Respect all infection prevention and control (IPC) measures in place.
  • Complete RAT prior to entry.
  • Wear a N95 mask indoors and outdoors within residential aged care centre grounds.
  • Refrain from visiting if unwell or if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 case.
  • If COVID-19 positive, refrain from visiting for at least 7 days and until symptom free.
  • Visitors are limited to two people at a time, from 9am – 12pm and 2pm – 5pm daily.

We appreciate your understanding as we continue to manage this outbreak, and we will be sure to provide further updates where appropriate. We would also like to wish all our residents, families, and friends a safe and happy Easter.
