COVID-19 Update: SwanCare Ningana

We need to advise an update on the current COVID-19 outbreak at SwanCare Ningana. This morning one resident on Level 1 and one staff member both returned a positive result for COVID-19. The affected resident’s family have been notified and the resident is being well taken care of in their room while the staff member is recovering at home.

The additional positive cases mean that unfortunately Level 1 will need to remain closed to visitors over the Easter period and movement restrictions will continue. Exemptions can be made for end of life and partners in care under increased infection control protocols.

This also means that the Resident and Relative meeting scheduled for this Thursday will be postponed.

Residents will continue to be closely monitored for symptoms and will be tested every 72 hours as required.

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 patience and cooperation as we continue to manage this outbreak. We will be sure to provide further updates where appropriate.
